xp log on then log off after virus control


Hey, so, I foolishly downloaded crap off the net, got some kinda bug, AVG did not catch it, Kaspersky did a big kill to get it, reboot, then I log on, desktop flashes, then saves settings and logs off. Over and Over. I have tried to copy userinit.exe to wsaupdater, can't find it. I have rebuilt the reg in dos according to another sites direction, did not work. Tried doing a repair from xp disk, no go. Downloaded some repair disk that is like the xp disk, but added a fressh userinit file from this laptop, ran that, starts the xp repair, then goes to blue death screen. Houston, we have a problem. Any ideas? I just needed to burn a video clip to disc for work, now I am stuck in a technical weekend killer. bummer.

Sounds like you're in for a complete rebuild. Your operating system is corrupt. I'd pull the drive and slave it onto another computer to backup the data, or just install a brand new drive (they're pretty cheap nowadays), reinstall the o/s, then slave the existing drive. Needless to say you'll have to reinstall all your software, drivers, etc. I feel for you.

I agree, slave it to another drive. If you slave it you might be able to use the master to check, test, and repair it.

I am a computer tech and I have run accross that problem in the field.

It is definately a wipe/reload scenario.

Be careful when slaving the drive that you do not copy over the virus as well..

Try to focus on pics/documents/video, and avoid copying ANY files with the .exe extension.

Definitely have some AV running while copying the files, as it may pick up a problem before files are copied.
