Hey all, quick back story. A friend of mine has a PC running Windows XP Pro x64 (SP2). She was having a spyware issue and ran a scan which removed some files. After the files were removed she was asked to reboot. After the reboot the PC boots to a black screen with just the mouse. No chance to do anything, CAD yields nothing. I tried booting to last known good, no dice. I tried safe mode but it doesn't even get to the screen to select the profiles, it just sits at a black screen with the mouse (CAD doesn't do anything).

Now. I figured I would run a repair install but this is a custom built box and the maker didn't issue a normal windows CD, just an image disk which will blow away the drive and puts the ghosted image back on (nice right?).

Any suggestions on what I should try? I cannot get into windows to do anything, safe mode is a no go. I don't have a normal windows CD to do anything with.

I tried finding a boot disk to try to at least get to a dos prompt to try and copy the file over (assuming winlogon.exe is the issue) but my google-fu is failing me and I can't find a boot disk for xp pro x64
