A few weeks ago I got the nasty spy sherriff virus/adware.

I took care of it and my computer seemed to be fine.

I left for a few weeks and I came home last night.

I used it and did whatever on it, I noticed it was being a little sluggish so I figured i would reboot it.

When it loaded into windows it got stuck at the " starting up windows box"

I left it sitting there all night, when I got up this morning it was still there and there wasnt a log in box in sight :thumbsup:

I have tried rebooting several times with no luck.

The computer will start up in safe mode fine, but it will not start up in safe mode with networking.

any ideas?

Thanks

Try running chkdsk on the hard drive, maybe you have some bad sectors

If you boot off a Windows installation CD, you can start the Recovery Console by pushing "R" on the first menu. When it loads, you can run "chkdsk /f"

I was planning on doing that but my cds are in my office and not with me at home...

I am avoiding work today and I cant just roll in there and get my cds and leave :thumbsup:

See if there's an i386 folder on your hard drive. That'll contain the install files (I think it's winnt32.exe to start it), so that you can run chkdsk.exe and sfc.exe /scannow.

You may have to go for a repair install tho' - here's a link on it: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

Don't forget to visit Windows Update immediately after SFC.EXE and a repair install - SFC.EXE may replace some of your updates, while a repair install will definitely replace them!
