|Ahh! Good! |
Guess I misunderstood, and thought you had no options in either normal or safe mode.
Let’s try using System Restore using Safe Mode with Command Prompt:
Get to the Safe mode with a Command prompt option.
Select your operating system, and then press: Enter
Log on as an Administrator or with an account that has administrator credentials.
If a password was never set, leave it blank, and press: Enter
At the command prompt, type (or copy/paste):
At the System Restore screen, select:
‘Restore my computer to an earlier time’
On the ‘Select a Restore Point’ page, click on a bold date on the calendar, prior to the day the problem started.
On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next.
System Restore should restore the previous Windows XP configuration, and restarts the computer to a functional state.
When the computer gets back to a functional state, do not use it any more than you have to, and post back for further instructions.
If you have an infection of some nature, we need a description of what happens, or what alerts you are getting, so we can take appropriate action.
