Hello,
Earlier today I left the room, only to come back and find that my computer (IBM T42, Win XP) had crashed and now would not reboot. I was able to get to safe mode. I noticed on my desktop an icon for "Zentom", so I knew I had a virus. I ran Malware Bytes Quick Scan AND Full Scan, and both times a number of files were found and removed. Still would not boot properly. I then ran Kapersky's virus remover, which found nothing new. When I restart I get a blue screen with error message. Is this something that can be fixed. Could this Zentom virus do something to my startup files or BIOS or whatever?? Please help!

Thank you!

I seem to have successfully removed the Zentom virus, but the computer will not start up. Thanks.
