My machine was attacked with spyware. by following instructions....I deleted some files from Hijackthis.......but when i rebooted the machine it gets stuck on the Windows Millenium screen. Then tried to put the recovery CD & with the F8 button went into the safe mode with command prompt option.
Then in the C:\windows\command folder ran the scanreg \restore option to recover the registry from earlier. But still it didn't help.
I am unable to boot up the machine bith in normal & safe mode.
Then tried running scandisk....got a message saying:
"Scandisk is unable to check a drive because there is no extended memory driver loaded on your computer.
To check this drive, make sure that you have a HIMEM.sys file on the disk.........restart using 'Command prompt only option'. depending on the location of the HIMEM.sys file, you may need to add a line such as DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS in the Config.sys file on your boot drive".
The config.sys file on the C:\ has 0 bytes so when i say edit config.sys at the command prompt it returns bad command or file......
Pls...Pls.. help to get me started.
Many Thanks in Advance.
