|After a bad virus attack I'm left with a machine |
that will get as far as the logon screen and the
'winlogon.exe - application error' message
appears. Clicking 'OK' or closing the box
results in an immediate restart, clicking on 'No'
to debug the system just hangs. If I leave it a
while and click the 'X' then I can logon and it
will occasionally show the desktop but then
reboot. This happens in both safe and normal
modes. I've run chkdsk /r and faults were
repaired. I've removed every trace of any nasty
(using a live Kaspersky CD) so I know it's a
system problem. Trying System Restore from
command prompt (the only way available)
brings back a message to the effect that
'System restore cannot protect your system,
reboot & try again'!! - needless to say it still
doesn't work but I know there are restore
points available in the Restore folder.
I reckon the two options left to me are to try
repairing the registry using the backups from
the repair folder, or doing a repair install. I
would prefer the first option so as to avoid
having to reinstall a load of programs, but I'm
not too sure if it will work.
Any opinions, or other options please?
