I ran the combofix beta (KittyFix) on an infected computer just to test out the beta, and here is the issue I have.

When the computer reboots, it comes to the logon screen, but no accounts are available, and it just has the 'Windows XP" Logo.

I can not get into safe mode because it does the same thing.

It isn't crucial that this gets repaired, I'm posting this more of a heads up that the beta version did this to a computer, however any ideas are greatly appreciated.

The machine is a Dell Inspiron 6000, running Windows XP Home Edition, 1GB Ram, 80 Gb HDD, Intel Pentium M Processor.

I'd post a HJT log, but I can't get into Windows.

Thanks a lot!

Was the computer infected? If so, what were the symptoms?

Any google redirects?

Did you receive a rootkit found message after the System Restore point creation and before Stage 1 of the scan?

Yes the computer was very infected with some fake anti-virus sotware. I took the drive out and externally scanned it with AVG, Malwarebyes, and Super Anto Spyware. I then booted the computer up into Windows, which it did fine, and then booted into safemode where I ran Combofix. It said it needed to reboot like it normally does on very infected computers, and then when it came back up, I get what I previously said in my first post.

Thanks again!

Well, after messing around with it, I did a repair install of Windows, which fixed the problem. I'm sure there is an easier way, but I didn't have time to play around with it for too long. Thanks all for the help, and hopefully combofix will repair this issue in the future! :thumbsup:
