I discovered the Security tools malware when logging into my user account.
Couldn't bring up regedit or task manager.
I rebooted the computer: dell, XP service pack 2
Booting Windows results in black screen.
Can boot into recovery console.
I don't have a windows disk.
(I have the recovery console as a by product of running Combo Fix a year or so ago) Thanks! it saved the day.
System was clean of malware as of this weekend (I run spybot search and destroy / tea timer)
I am an embedded systems programmer by trade, have written VxDs way back when: and it don't help much!
