i followed instructions for removing winfixer (18610 including downloading Hijack This and Vundo) but when i rebooted in safe mode, my computer would only go to the black screen with "Safe Mode" in each corner, no further. i couldn't get to Vundo in order to run it, nor could i use Hijack This (so no log). i tried to reboot, but unfortunately used msconfig to set safe mode so it reboots still in Safe Mode and only up to the black screen.

when it starts, there is a pop up that begins with something like Running in Safe Mode and Yes and No buttons at the bottom but it shuts down before i can click on it or read the middle. now what? how do i undo (mcsonfig) Safe Mode and how do i get past the black screen?

i am using my kids' computer but urgently need mine for work. i will be highly grateful for your help.

If you need to get access to your PC I suggest building the UBCD4Win which will give you full read/write access to your PC allowing you to remove any malware.

To build you will need your WinXP installation CD with SP1 or SP2 integrated or use the I386 which was part of the preinstall again SP1 or SP2 will need to be integrated.
