this is my first post here.
I am desperate for some help, as Security Tool has totally taken over my life since yesterday.
I am running XP professional
I got the Virus yesterday and used various online suggestions on how to remove it (stop process, delete exe and folder
delete regisrty etc.)
then XP did not start anymore
I started in Safe mode, ran Avast and had Avast delete a bunch of infected files
Still no regular start anymore
I then downloaded Spydoctor, which found a few more files. I deleted those manually.
Still cannot start XP other than in safe mode.
Tried to create a new user profile, but it is still stuck.
Cannot do system restore, even if I choose a very old restore point from 2008
I tried to reinstall XP booting from CD, but that did not work either.
I did manage to run DDS, but when I tried the root repeal scan the computer just froze so I cannot post a log.
I hope to receive some help here.
I did do a search and saw a few other posts, but I am not sure what to do.
So I figured before I make things worse, I ask for help.
Any feedback is appreciated.
