Hi

XP Pro
Compaq nx6110 Laptop

Recently had this smart disk corrupt disk thing and proceeded to take steps to get rid of it:

Firstly ran the iexplorer.exe
As all my links were dud I had to log into my Admin account, update Malware bytes and run the process from there - did not have to go into safe mode with networking
This removed 3 files I think it was and from that I had to run the unhide process
Now the only thing I haven't done is restore my start menu items

Finally, apart from restoring my start menu, is there anything else I can do to check I am still not infected?

Thanks

Andrew

You have started a topic here

Did you run any of these scans which made system unbootable?

I can't run anything now as my laptop isn't booting into windows. All I get is start up screen, where it says press F10 etc. then goes to black screen with blinking cursor at top left. Going to try recovery tonight.

Will post here if I get back in.
