It runs XP and is at least a Pentium2.
When I went back in to clean up more stuff I ran into a looping problem. This is the endless loop it's in:
Windows logon screen - asks for password for administration. I just click OK.
desktop wallpaper screen appears with beach scene.
Screen goes dark black.
Splash screen appears briefly: reads ASUS PB4 (big logo)
start uop routine starts showing all the specs suggests that hitting Control + S will get me into setup - that never works. I can't get into set-up.
Windows XP loading screen runs
Windows logon screen appears- I click OK
The windows desktop finally opens.
I click start and get the following message: It's a RUNDLL screen box: "Error loading C:\WINDOS\xxxsts.ddl could not be found"
click OK to shut it and it reboots and the sequence starts again.
I can't get into startup with Control + S. Is there another way?
Could I add a second hard drive and then load a WIN 32 trojan removal program in that and the target the other drive?
I have plenty of cleaning software but with the CPU in that kind of a loop I have no idea how to break the chain.
