Hi I recently had a virus & it stopped me opening programs. Thinking it was a windows problem resulting from the virus, I bravely & probably stupidly decided to restore windows from an old disk. I now cannot log in - I get a blue screen.............I can log in on safe mode though it now takes a few minutes instead of seconds to load my settings. Also, when I start up, I noticed it comes up with partition 2 while loading. Have I done something really bad? Is it fixable? Please let me know what info you need to help. AMD Athlon 64 dual proccessor 3000+ 1.8ghz Windows XP SP3

Hi I think I've accidentally set up partition 2 by reinstalling Windows XP. Can I undo it? How? AMD Athlon 62 dual processor - currently showing Windows XP (home edition) v2002 SP2. Please let me know what other info you need. I hope someone can help!

You currently have an open malware topic here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic464777.html

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the logs you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another Malware Removal Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

After your computer is deemed clear of malware by a Malware Removal specialist, and you still have issues, you can PM any Moderator and ask for this topic to be reopened.
