I was trying to run combofix and I mistakenly uninstalled the antivirus and restarted (i know, bad idea!). now, my PC is showing a cursor in a black screen and nothing else. the OS is not starting. my PC is asus eee 1000H running xp Home. help please!

I'm trying to type and the letters are not showing. the OS is not starting. my PC is asus eee 1000H running xp Home.

i don't have the OS disk with me and the detachable cd drive since I'm traveling. i just have a 1 gb usb drive. i have access to the internet though.

help please!

Hi rhaiyne. you should probably start your own topic as your issues may be different. There are others here that are more qualified to deal with combofix and virus related issues. can you boot to safe mode and use system restore ?

Worth reading, Black Screen (fixmbr) - http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;314503

I would try the fixmbr command from the XP Reoovery Console...that's the common cure for such in XP.
