I believe both golsearch and conduit have taken me down

Started with golsearch taking over browser so spent half a day trying to remove it with virus scans etc on my AV then malwarebites etc this then somehow morphed into conduit

After a day of trying it seemed to be gone, now 2 days after this I boot my Netbook up only to get

bootmgr missing
Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart

So manage to use xPUD on a USB stick to gain access to PC to remove most important files and there I'm stuck, this is as far as I can go on my own anyone want to help

What's really odd is this is on xp home not windows 7 and I've had the Netbook from new so there has never been an atempt to install another os on this machine my understanding is bootmgr is usually an issue with windows 7 not xp

You can try:  http://www.malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-golsearch-virus/

 

For Conduit:  http://www.malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-conduit-apps-search-and-toolbar/

 

Sorry these are probably too late until your computer gets running again, something I'm unable to help you with, but I know one of our moderators can help you with your main problem.

Since the "searches" are not your most pressing problem now, you might repost under a different category to get a moderator more familiar with your bootmgr trouble.  I wish you luck.

As said in Post #2, you need a moderator to help you with your main problem.  You have a post going here and another in Windows XP  where Anshad Edavana is advising you.  I would suggest you  stay there where your latest problem began.
