Let's look at the boot.ini file.
  • Right click on My Computer and choose Properties
  • In the Properties window, click on the Advanced tab.
  • In the Startup and Recovery section, click on the Settings button.
  • In the window that opens, click on the Edit button...a notepad window will open (boot.ini)
  • copy the contents of that window and paste it here for me.

Most of the talk was performed on IRC.

I am closing this topic because you have a topic in the malware forum.
Please finish that topic following their advise. If you go around fixing things yourself, you'll only make it worse.

Olrik
