I have been having problems with malware the last couple days. For protection against spyware, I use both spybot search & destroy and adaware. My virus protection is AVG Free. I noticed problems with speed and other spyware indicators. I ran both spyware protection programs and both removed alot of stuff. However, Spybot found fraud.xpantivirus and could not remove it. I opted to remove it on reboot.

The first time I rebooted, the system stalled. I turned off my machine and started over. This time it started up, ran a prelaunch search, and seemed to have discovered and removed fraud.xpantivirus. Yet, my machine kept acting out. I ran spybot again with the same results. It found the spyware, but had to restart to remove it.

This time when I rebooted, It ran to the login screen. I typed in my password and it started to load my preferences. It went to the start up screen for a few seconds, but before any icons were loads the machine logged me out. I tried to restart in safe mode and it did the exact same thing. I cannot get past the login screen in either normal or safe modes.

Am I doomed?

I have a Dell Latitude D520 and my os is Windows XP and I run Microsoft 2007 software. I am sending this from my wife's laptop.
