i did full remove it, following this thread. i wish that i had posted a new topic at first, but it seemed simple so i didn't. :-\ i didn't do anything different or weird, i know what i am doing. i removed it simply.
now, as soon as i came here, when i found out i had the virus. i went to the thread. it first says to go to the control panel. i tired, and my computer rebooted itself. no errors, no messages popping up. i searched around and didnt find anything saying that this is from the virus. but i was at the control panel a small while before i noticed i had it (i know exactly when i got it and i was in it about 20min earlier).
i've downloaded lots of programs. i downloaded spybot a few hours ago, and it found some things so i deleted them. after i rebooted, everytime the windows xp welcome screen came up my computer rebooted again. i couldn't log in to windows.
i booted in safe mode and it asked if i wanted to do a restore, i did a restore to before i installed spybot. it works fine now, but i would at least like to know if there's a way to fix this boot error when i click the control panel. or, if i have to resort to reformatting windows, which i prefer not to do.
