Can't start up in normal mode after trojan

January 17, 2010 at 22:58:03
Specs: Windows XP
I was attacked by "Trojan:WinNT.D" a few days ago, which I'm pretty sure is now entirely removed along with all other spyware and what-not that it brought with it. However one crucial problem remains; I can't boot up my computer in normal mode. It loads for a bit and then gives me the blue system failure screen. How can I regain use of normal mode? Could this mean that there is still malicious software on my computer? Thanks in advance.
Ps. Did I post this in the right section?

If you have an XP install CD of the same eg: home=home, pro=pro (you can't mix and match) you can do a repair install:

Sounds like a good Idea. I'll get to it right away, but will i lose any programs, files, music, etc. from it? Also will i have to do anything afterwards like update drivers or anything?
Thanks for the reply

did you click on the link I gave? It explains everything.
A repair install ONLY replaces the operating system and deletes all the critical up-dates. You will have to do the updates when done.
