Hi need help desperately. I have a PC that was infected with lots of things, the most obvious was the worm.Netsky and its infamous Green WallPaper. After running MalwareBytes and trying Avira, I ran Combofix. It hung after downloading the Recovery Console. I restarted the PC and it briefly boots to the screen with the choice of Recovery Console or Windows XP Home. Then it goes to XP Home and hungs with a completely black screen.
I tried a few things suggested in this forum like b atch erdnt.con in the Recovery Console, ran Chkdsk and Fixmbr all without getting any further.
If I try starting in Safe Mode it stops after loading the drivers (I'll need to start it again to get the last driver). The last driver before it hangs is isapnp.sys.

I've created the OTLPE Disk and run that so I do have a OTL.txt if anyone needs to see it.

The PC is running Windows XP Home, I was running Combofix from a USB Thumbdrive.

Any help is appreciated.
