I had previously been talking with someone on this site a month ago or so, regarding removal of Spyware, Malware, Viruses, Pop-Ups, Adware, and registry fixes. In the midst of getting through those problems, it all came to a halt when the computer would not boot completely.
I am sending this via my work computer, since I cannot get into mine at home. 90% of my attempts lead to the screen asking if I'd like to Boot Windows Normally, Boot Last Known Good Configuration, or the 3 Safe Mode Options. In most cases, no matter what I choose, the computer attempts to boot, but then freezes on a black screen, sometimes with the mouse cursor in the middle of the screen. I have also seen it freeze on the Black Windows XP page with the little bar moving, which freezes, as well as at the Blue 'Welcome' screen, right before windows opens. Very Rarely does it ever boot completely into Windows. And as much as I have noticed the only time it will actually do that is when I select to "Boot Normally." Once in windows, the computer will freeze up within a few minutes, leaving no time to run virus scans or anything. Once it freezes at that point it takes numerous attampts to get it to boot Windows fully again.
On a side note, I have tried to boot from the Windows XP disc, and try to just Format and -Re-install, but that process halts as well at the blue screen that says "Windows is starting..." after all of the necessary files/components load.
I am pretty much at a loss. Any help or advice you might have would be great. I'm not sure where to start, let alone which direction to go in. Thanks!
