When I boot in regular mode I see all the wonderful stuff from System Fix we all know and love. Everything is disabled. No task manager, reg edit etc. Only option is START exit, restart etc, no programs etc. In safe mode, with or with out networking I see no icons. Click START and see no programs, run is not an option either. In Administrator/safe mode, I see only Recycle bin and Internet explorer. I go out on net to Bleeping Computer and download Rkill and malware bytes. I run them and they say nothing is wrong.(prolly because there isn't in Administrator.) I have tried copying the two programs to CD and reboot in my user ID. Safe mode I see nothing so I cannot copy or run them in my user ID. What do I do next? It is a windows XP home (Build 2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr. 100216-1441: Service Pack 2. It is a HP Invent. 512 meg of ram. CPU AMD Athlon XP 3200+. Speed 2200MHJz/400MHz with 512 Cashe ram. I realize it is an old machine but it belongs to a friend and up until last week served it's purpose. It also has a bunch of files, pictures etc. If I could get control long enough I might talk them into a new machine. It is used in a dial up situation. I have it hooked to my network at my house. I would rather just strip the virus off but if I can't would placing the hard drive in a different computer as a slave could I copy off the files without infecting my computer? I can see it on my network but being a Home edition and never set up for networking I have no access.
Thank you in advance...
