I have a problem. I ran combofix, renamed when running it, to remove a rootkit.
During the process, it had to reboot my laptop, xp. During boot it goes to a screen
where (like hitting f8) it gives you choices i.e., safe mode, safe mode with networking, while at the same counting down to boot windows normally. Then when it reboots, it ends up on the same screen again. I had to select safe mode, at which point, programs did come up. I check msconfig, startup programs, all there normally, but again, it go to f8 screen, and loop again, instead of booting windows completely.
What can I do. I have a feeling combofix screwed my system.
Help, Please.

See if you can get it to boot into Safe Mode with Networking. That may allow you to get on the internet and you can post your combofix log.
