Hello all and thank you for all the help that you provide....

I've encountered a problem with my computer and Rorschach112 from atribune.org sent me here for additional help.

I posted a couple of times there and here is the link to the thread: Cant Start Windows in Normal Mode...Vundo Infection

It all started with pop ups and a changed wallpaper saying that i had been infected and should buy spyware removal. It claimed that I had some .netbooster trojan..

i downloaded AVG and when i tried to run it, my pc shut down...

i couldnt go back to normal mode, so i went in in safe mode, ran AVG and it told me that i had the Vundo.L virus....

its gotten to the point now that i cant go in in safe or normal mode...it just reboots before i get to the windows log on screen...

i tried to run the "Last Known Config", but it says that i am missing a hal.dll file....

there is more information on the previous posts at atribune.org

Your help is greatly appreciated....

We now need to make certain that this issue is not malware because if we troubleshoot otherwise we may be wasting our time.

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

He has a thread over at Atribune.org with me, the malware part is on hold for the time being since he ran some scan and can't boot up his PC

I am hoping somebody will fix his hal.dll problem, then I will take over.

Thanks Rorschach112,

i am hoping that someone can help me with this.

As it is, i cant log on to windows. Right before the select your profile, it just reboots.

The same thing happens in safe mode.

I tried "Last Known Config" and it told me that i was missing a hal.dll file and then it rebooted...

So no luck there...

When i try to boot up in safe mode, i do get 2 options, 1. windows XP and 2. System Recovery console...

Any help will be appreciated...
