HP Computer running Win XP.

Last night the computer took much longer than usual to turn off. Windows indicated that it was 'updating' files.

Now the computer will not go into Windows, we get the following message: "We apologize for the inconvenience but Windows did not start successfully." and then something about "A recent software or hardware change."

I did have a malware bug two weeks ago that was fixed with help from this site.



PS, I already submitted this question in the 'Am I infected' Forum. I didn't get a response, so I decided to add it here. Hope that isn't out of line.

Please do not double post. This only causes confusion and potentially conflicting information. Your post in the Am I Infected forum is not that old, please give it a chance to be replied to.

To avoid confusion I am closing this topic.
