Please please help. :thumbsup:

--Got Viruses after visiting a stupid dumb trivia website. (Got WebHancer. Mirar.

ezshieldprotector. dyfuca. surfsidekick)
--Tried to delete the folders the virus added to my comp, could'nt. Got Norton, ran

it. Also ran ad-aware, spybot, webaso, registry mechanic(?), Stinger, and Avast!
--Plugged drive into another computer and ran Norton until it says its clean, still

does'nt work.

--Now as soon as logon screen comes up, and I click on it to enter Xp, it says saving

settings, logging off. I can't get into XP at all! Sometimes the desktop will flash on

for a second, then go back to login screen.
--Tried to use F8, F12, F2 keys. Tried Safe mode. Tried to make boot discs from web,

but they just don't activate? Tried to make dos prompt boot disc too.
--Tried 3 differnt Xp cds, plus Nopix, failed.

--Took drive out and copied all my important files to another computer.
--When I go into BIOs and do 'boot from from CD', it gives me the message,

SATA Secondary drive 0 not found.
Primary Drive 1 not found.

--In Bios I can see that it labels both drives correctly. One is SATA (main c:)

another is IDE.

--Please help. Please use baby language. Really. I've asked on another board too, but

seems am out of options, If you'd like a copy of their suggestions I could paste them

here maybe?

Please help

Sometimes the fix for viruses is worse than the cure. That's because the viruses invade important system files and removing them breaks these files.

If you can get into Safe Mode with networking support - go to this site and perform a free, online scan to ensure that you're clean ( http://housecall.trendmicro.com ). Once that's done, let us know and we'll work on getting the system fixed.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
