Help .....I have a win 2000 computer.... up to now has been working beautifully....today I got malware on it .....SecurityEssential2010...i went to safe mode to remove....i removed the files for Security Essential 2010 from the program file. I then removed it from the startup menu.... i then rebooted the machine .
After the computer was rebooted the Security Essential 2010 was still there.....I ran the AVG anti virus , it found many trojans . So i deleted them from the virus vault . I also ran the AdWare scan and it found one infection and said that i needed to reboot.
when i rebooted i got the trouble i have now. Described as below...
When the machine starts up and i see the "Saving your settings" sign.. then "Loading your personal settings" sign ...then the start up music begins...plays for a few seconds , then starts the sequence over again..."Saving your settings" sign comes on.. then "Loading your personal settings" sign comes on ...then the music plays for a few seconds ....over and over..like an endless loop ... to infinity.
I have tried to go to the Safe mode but it never fully moves into the mode. I must have deleted files needed to start my machine when i deleted those infected files from the AVG vault.
In any case i cannot move past the start up. Must i reformat the disk? Any help is appreciated ...Thanks
