I would like to address some issues concerning Win XP Professional in the aftermath of
a malware infection. My PC has been declared clean from infection.
Following a malware cleanup procedure, thanks to moderator Blade from this forum, I have
noticed a couple of new problems which I have outlined below.
1) On PC bootup, I keep getting the safe mode screen with Advanced Options right before Win XP logo appears.
This is not the menu screen with options to select WIn XP and Recovery Console which I have installed.
2) After logging in, the taskbar icons like the Anti-Virus application loads up slowly. So is the case with
My Computer when accessed from Start Menu or othewise.
3) I cannot save files to my folders from running any apllication like Office 2007. Like say, I want to
save a word document to my hard drive, the Save AS menu just hangs up.
I have to point out that as part of the cleanup procedure, I had to install Dial-a-Fix application to fix Automatic Updates issue.
(Automatic Updates had been turned off and I couldn't get it back on from the Security Center).
I think I began to face these problems after executing Dial-a-fix application.
Any help would be greatly appreciated in fixing these issues.
