Can you hook to the internet on this computer ? If yes use the link in my signature to do an online scan

go to start > run type in cmd click ok
does a dos window open ?
Or
Repair XP

I canīt access the internet as the software wonīt load.

Canīt access anythinmg through command line: "Windows cannot open this file"

I can access a working command console through: "Safe mode with command prompt"

Will read through your tips now.

I can in safe mode.

Will try that now.

Have been working all night without success.
Including running various dos scanners and BartPE, checking the registry for start files etc.

Only success was with Ad-Aware which deleted:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT:regfile\shell\open\command

Do you have a floppy on both machines ?
If yes go to the link in my signature code stuff starter and download it.
put it on the bad computer and see if it will unzip and launch. You can run adaware so it looks like some files will run.

Found 7 keys with the word unlocker and deleted them.

Problem remains.

Donīt have a floppy on both, but this solution look almost like the BartPE option.

Have to do some work now and will see you later.

Personally, I would suggest downloading Regseeker and do Clean Registry.
It will search through the registry for unused keys and unneeded keys, keys that are corrupt and blank space keys.
You can choose which keys to delete.

I use the program to get rid of any spyware.
Really, there is no spyware that can get around this combo:

Hijackthis
Regseeker
Spybot S&D

It's made to get rid of spyware, but you can also delete anything else that's not in use or any program that you want to get rid of.

I know I'm not allowed to put links up this site for programs that aren't approved by a staff member, so I'll just give the name.

"Regseeker" it's from Hoverdesk.
