Hi, I am not very good with computers so I will explain this as best as I can.

I am currently running Vista SP2 on a HP530 Laptop.

I was infected with the Antimalware Doctor virus a few days ago and have tried a few steps before. These were:

o Running the computer in Safe Mode and using Malwarebytes (to no avail)
o Trying Startup Repair and also System Restore (restoring to an earlier date)

Now after trying these steps, it will not even let me boot to the login screen (it ends up with a cursor on a black screen and stays there (the screen before the Login screen appears)

It always goes to this screen no matter what mode I run it in.

I do not really want to Format it because I do not have a Vista recovery disc and am not sure whether my motherboard will support XP.


Edit: Moved topic from Vista to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal
