I have been trying to get rid of W32/Alemod.f.dll virus and wanted to replace the infected wininet.dll file, but I deleted it before I had downloaded a clean one. Now I cannot do anything. My computer freezes at the logon screen, same with Safe Mode, and I cannot load a CD or floppy. Please help.

I had a similar problem... though not malware related (more like being an idiotic teen and deleting something that I "thought" was a security risk). As far as my knowledge extends, I don't believe that any of us will be able to give you another solution other than to reformat your computer. Since your computer is freezing before you have a chance to even enter it, then I highly doubt it is in anyone's power to save your machine by means other than reformatting. I know it can be harsh to reformat your computer (believe me, I lost quite a lot of data by not backing up), but I don't see any other alternative. Then again, I'm mearly a "padawan" in the field of computer security, so stick around a bit longer for one of the pros to dispense their advice.

How do I even reformat it if that is the only answer?
