Really sorry about this. My Windows XP SP3, was infected with a redirect virus for which I had posted for help here. I've been running scans with various antivirus in the meantime. While I was out, someone in the house noticed an Emsisoft scan had finished, and ended up quarantining an infection. Problem is, Emsisoft had earlier reported that Explorer.exe was infected. I think it was still reporting this, and quarantined Explorer.exe.
Did I mention my computer was in safe mode when this happened?
Now when I boot the computer in either mode it opens to no controls on the screen, just my background.
I tried logging in on the 2nd Admin account, but the same thing happened. My thought was to open emsisoft and unquarantine the file, unlocking it for all other users.
Anyone know how to reenable explorer.exe? or access programs when explorer.exe won't run? so I can run emsisoft and unquarantine the file.
Recently I replaced my motherboard, so I think my recovery disks are no good anymore
Should I Restore upon reboot? (the redirect virus which started this whole thing deleted all my restore points prior to infection)
