:thumbsup: I luckly acquired Spysheriff over the weekend... I went through the step presented here on bleepingcomputer.com to remove the bleep and now I have another problem. When I goto boot up normally, my computer freezes up at the "Windows is statring up..." message, and just stays there. I'm able to boot in safe mode, but not with networking. I don't know what I should do, can anyone help????? I really would like to fix this problem without having to do a complete restoration of my operating system...

Thanks to anyone who can help, Chad

You should type scanreg /fix, not scanregw.exe

Do you have system restore turned on? Have you tried restoring your system to a point before the problem started?

It would have only helpped if it was on prior to the problem. Being off it has no restore points,

If you have the Windows XP installation cd use it to boot from and perform a repair installation:
