I have managed to contract this PCeU hijacker which has locked me out of my laptop.[XPS M1210] AMD chip. I searched online for fixes but cant find a solution that I can use or that works on the Laptop. Im running an old version of XP Pro 5.1 so cannot use 'Safe Mode with Networking' as the PCEU page loads once that I have logged on to the user account. I have tried 'Safe Mode with Command Prompt' then typing > CD Restore > rstrui.exe to get to system restore to choose a restore point before the infection. However the system cannot find the path specified when I type the initial cd restore command.
I have Malwarebytes on my desktop but cant access it and the machine im typing this on is a Linux OS and wont let me download to a stick. Can anyone provide instruction to remove this properly, I have searched through the topics and cant find a solution and im not very proficient at fixing problems without a guide.
Thanks in advance.
