I am running Windows XP Home and IE 8. I am trying to disinfect my machine, however, I cannot boot into safe mode with or without networking. In SM with networking, I get my wallpaper and no icons. Task Manager is disabled by a phantom new user called Administrator which magically appeared on my welcome screen.
SM alone I get a black screen with corner Safe Mode words and Microsoft's title at the top.
Can you advise how I can get my task manager or icons back -- or in the alternative -- can you advise how I can run malware from my c: prompt? Thanks!
