Not sure if this is the right place to post this topic but here is the background. My wife got malware that had pop-up screens that said she was infected and she should buy "XP antivirus 2010". I ran MalwareBytes and Spybot Search and destroy in normal and safe mode and it appeared the problem was solved. However, hours later "XP anitvirus 2010" problem reappeared. I spoke to a computer friend of mine and he suggested that I run combofix. I downloaded combofix and ran it. It installed "Microsoft Windows Recovery Console" sucessfully then it ran combofix. Combo fix ran fine until it forced a reboot. It tried to reboot in "normal mode" and failed. At that time, I restarted the computer and it sucessfully ran in "safe mode". At that time combofix continued to run and it completed and created the Combofix log file. Now I may have a computer that does not have malware (it does not show up in "safe Mode"). However, I want to get the computer to boot into "normal mode". Suggestions greatly appreciated. Windows does boot beyond the splash screen but at some point before the normal desktop screen appears it stops accessing the disk and does not complete the boot.
