I have fought this thing for two weeks.

1. Do repair install of windows xp if you cannot access safe mode.

2. Boot into safe mode

3. Log on as administrator.

3. using Process Explorer from SysInternals (free), stop all instances of iexplorer.exe, then kill any threads in explorer.exe that start with H8SRT...

4. Now you can run GMER root kit detector(free). Remove the H8SRT.sys file.

5. Boot your windows installation CD and select R for repair. Delete the file c:\windows\system32\config\SYSTEM
The copy the SYSTEM file from C:\windows\repair\ to the c:\windows\system32\config folder.

6. After restarting, some devices may not work, like the network card. Those sorts of things are easily repaired.

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
