hello.. I got a nasty trojan a few days ago(forgot what kind it was)
But now I cant start my computer up.
I use xp home edition on a hp pavillion a111on.(not my first choice but it gets the job done).
When it trys to boot it says windows cant start ,reinstall ntoskrnl.exe...Apparently the windowsroot/system32/ntoskrnl.exe file is damaged.
I tried to do system recovery and that failed as well,it told me that minit/system32/biosinfo.inf cant be loaded ,error code 292.
If im lucky I can get it to go into safe mode every once in a while but I dont even know how to fix it once im in
any help would be great.thank you

this may not solve all of your problems, but you can copy ntoskrnl.exe from a working system and copy it to your system32 folder overwriting the corrupt file. I would expect to get another error message after this repair, but maybe not.

Can you please give us the exact ntoskrnl.exe error as well as a little info on the procedure that you used to remove the virus?
In the beginning there was the command line.

All it said was the file was corrupt or missing when windows failed to boot. It said to reinstall the file. It never said anything else. When I tried to do system recovery. It gave me an error code.

Avira quarantined the file and I deleted it shortly after.the only way I can access the computer is to go to safe mode and then click on last known configuration that worked. Can I make changes to files in that mode?
