Hi! New to the forum!! Does anyone know???... I am currently running XP on my infected PC. I opened the same "USPS Customer Service" email, didnt download anything, however I am 99.9% sure this has infected my PC as I have not done anything else I can think of.

Issue is, I wasnt aware it infected my PC until I went to use it today. I got the "blue screen"!! I have attempted to download malwarebytes on my other PC running Vista, I saved it onto an USB flash, inserted it into the infected PC. Ive tried to boot in "safe mode", "safe mode with network", "directory Serv", normally & even tried to insert the re-install disk. Received an error each & every time. Does anyone have any suggestions?? I can download any software, the issue at hand is being able to run it on the infected PC.

Thanks!! :-)

The biggest issue is, is that I am NOT able to boot my PC in anyway, everything I try (safe mode, safe mode w/network, directory ser, normal & re install) gives me an error. So where i am able to download everything I need on my woking PC, my infected PC is the issue.
