Thank you for the response?However, as indicated on previous threads, I can not login /boot even in safe mode.

Good luck, and this is not meant to mean any disrespect or any judgement upon anyone's solution, in fact thank you, and good job, this site is awsome, also i encourage Everything seems to be working - I just can't logon. i dont know if im suppose to have a cd when I do this? http://stricklandresearch.net/problem-with/problem-with-cmd-exe.html Pick the OS you want to boot in (usually C:\windows), and enter your administrator password.
SOLUTION: This solution might or might not work for everyone but it did for me. (I am assuming that your Windows installation is in C:\Windows) Enter to your Windows emergency recovery Usually, all brand-name computers will boot up from the CD/DVD-ROM when they detect that is inside the drive. Thx.
Good luck ! This can be accomplished best with a reliable boot cd such as ubcd4win, can be found via a google search. To any/all of you who have sent me an email looking for some help, you will absolutely receive it. This should put a fresh copy of userinit.exe into your windows installation.
Goto options first, pick to use smart detection, set heuristics to medium or high, pick to run all the recommended extensions, all recommended disk areas, compressed files, etc. Look into your computer's manual to see how to get into the BIOS. Another choice would be to use the UBCD for Windows XP and then run the DrWeb Cure-It from a pen drive. have a peek at these guys Advertisements do not imply our endorsement of that product or service.

Yes, my password is: Forgot your password? So I figured that it needed explorer.exe at least to recognize this fact. leave everything checked and ensure the Show all box is un-checked.Now click the Scan button.Once the scan is complete, you may receive another notice about rootkit activity.Click OK.GMER will produce a YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
