If so then:
I suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal 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 the reguested logs in THAT forum. If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools
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).
If not then can you tell us what virus you have had or have?
Do you have a Genuine Original Microsoft XP installation disk or is it a copy?
Is this a brand name or clone system?
Make and model please.

I am able to go into safe mode, the issue there is that it does not have a start menu. Unable to acsess any files. I am running a chkdsk /r at this time. I do have a recovery console.

There is a difference.
Is this a upgrade or full version?

Setup cannot set the required windows xp configuration information. This indicates an eternal setup error. Contact your system administrator.
