Ok, so last week I got that Paladin fake anti-virus thing, I used the guides and got rid of it. Or at least I think I did as no more problems associated with it happened.

Now, just last night from a photoshop tutorials site I got this new Security Essentials one. So again I follow the guide here, malwareb, rkill.com etc. I then use hijackthis to remove some of the entries and finally CrapCleaner to clear temporary files and what not. Then I deleted the folders in the 'program files' associated with Security Essentials, and noticed there was still one on the C:drive left over from Paladin, phook.dll it was called. So I deleted all those, and restarted XP.

The computer now gets to the final loading screen, and reboots. I start in safe mode, reboots. Start in last config that works, reboots. Not one choice will allow me to fully login.

Any ideas of what I can do?

thanks

Ok, I have taken care of this. I couldn't get any hlep with this subject on multiple forums. So luckily my most important files were backed up, and now I have bought a mac. Too many years of dealing with windows problems and lackluster help on any forum.

I have no illusions the mac will be problem free, but much better support.
