Yesterday my PC got infected with the Internet Security 2010 malware bug. I google'd a solution, and downloaded MalwareBytes to find and delete all instances of it. After that, like in many cases, I've been unable to boot into Windows XP Pro. I'd see the loading splash screen for a few seconds, then a blue screen would flash and it would reboot.
First I tried using the XP Recovery Console, but I didn't have any luck with that. Then I looked this problem up on these forums, and I followed the steps at http://saveme.danfischbach.com/
but it still didn't let me log into Windows after it finished. I also tried using a BART PE boot disc, and I assumed the problem had to do with modifying the value in the registry of Userinit to
C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe. I modified that entry in BART PE as well, but I still can't boot. Now I'm all out of ideas
ASUS MAXIMUS III Formula
Intel Core i7-860 Lynnfield 2.8GHz
Windows XP Pro
Anyone have any other ideas?
