|It seems that I've been infected with a virus that doesn't allow explorer.exe to run. I'm on Windows XP. The login screen changed, it's no longer the blue welcome screen, but a little window where you have to type in your username and password. After that, I get stuck at my wallpaper and nothing else happens I've tried two System Restores and they failed. I know a lot of solutions involve going to the registry, but the command prompt tells me that the system cannot execute the specified problem!|
This thread greatly explains my problem, but unfortunately it got no replies. http://forums.techguy.org/virus-oth...
Going into safe mode isn't much help, other than the fact that I can use the command prompt. Safe mode just shows a black screen, with "Safe Mode" written in the four corners, and system information written at the top. If I select Safe Mode with Command Prompt I have a command prompt on the screen.
I'm not sure about my anti-virus, but I think it was enabled. I recently installed EASEUS Partition Master, I tried to resize my main partition but it said operation failed so I aborted. After the restart my computer worked fine, but a day later, I restart my computer again and I have all these problems.
I do not want to lose any of the files stored on this computer. If a reinstall is the only option then fine, but tell me how to get my files first.
Will I be able to access my files if I put this hard drive as a secondary hard drive in a different computer that has it's own Windows that can boot fine?
This problem occurs no matter which user I use.
