Yesterday, i was running a virus scan on my computer using Avast and i thought i got rid of a few viruses so i found out about Spybot- Search and Destroy. I downloaded the program and ran it. After 45 minutes, it pulled up 20, 324 problems found. I attempted to let the computer fix all the problems but it was talking hours so i was forced to quit the program and shut the computer down. This morning when i turned on the computer, none of my programs will pop up. There is a black box that keeps popping up saying C://WINDOWS/system32.com and a second later C://WINDOWS/system32.exe. It keeps looping between showing the two windows and it will not load up any programs. There is no start menu or system time or anything besides the black boxes. I really have no idea of what to do now. I am running a computer using Windows XP. I am unsure if important system files were deleted as well.

Hello there, lets try an alternative method here. I am moving this topic to a more appropriate forum.

On a working computer please download OTLPE (filesize 120,9 MB)
  • When downloaded double click on OTLPENet.exe and make sure there is a blank CD in your CD drive. This will automatically create a bootable CD.
  • Reboot your system using the boot CD you just created.
    Note : If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from CD follow the steps here
  • Your system should now display a REATOGO-X-PE desktop.
  • Depending on your type of internet connection, you should be able to get online as well so you can access this topic more easily.
  • Double-click on the OTLPE icon.
  • Ensure the box "Automatically Load All Remaining Users" is checked and press OK
  • OTL should now start.
  • Press Run Scan to start the scan.
  • When finished, the file will be saved in drive C:\OTL.txt
  • Copy this file to your USB drive if you do not have internet connection on this system
  • Please post the contents of the OTL.txt file in your reply.

regards, Elise
