I'm working on a computer for a friend of mine, Dell Lattitude d610 WinXP, had the System Antivirus 2008 bug. After boot, you could not do most tasks. Could not Add/Remove Programs, can't run Malwarebytes' Anti-Maleware, I can't restart in Safe Mode, it hangs up the goes to blue screen. I can't get Windows Explorer to view My Computer. I can't use the USB ports to install new anti virus programs or move files off the computer. I've installed another copy of WinXP so I can boot the computer in that copy, I can navigate through windows explorer to copy and move files. I downloaded a copy of the updated HijackThis and put it on the computer but it hangs up the the computer goes to blue screen. Any help would be appreciated. I tried to post the only HijackThis log I could get but it was from an outdated version. If you need it, I have it.
Thanks,
Jay

Head to the malware section of these forums. You'll need to go there eventually anyways.
