Hello - I'm new to this site and hope someone will be able to lend a helping hand. I recently had by laptop (running XP Pro) infected with the Internet Security 2010 virus. I follwed the Automated Removal Instructions for Internet Security 2010 using Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and was able to complete all of the steps. When I rebooted the laptop after removing the infected files I was not able to log into the machine. The machine logs in and immediatly logs out (a message saying saving setting appears immediatly following the log in). I also attempted to log in using safe mode with the same results (both my profile and the admin profile). Does anyone know how to resolve this issue without reinstalling the OS? I'm trying to salvage a few files on this machine if possible. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.

Following this will fix it.
Do Not send an HJT log, if requested. We will deal with that if needed.
