I was hit with the department of justice virus the other day and can't access my computer.  I have an HP Elitebook 8730w running XP SP3.  After realizing that I had an issue I tried to boot into safe mode with networking or command prompt to rid my machine of the virus.  It won't boot into safe mode.  It starts and then stops with the last line before BSOD showing \hpdskflt.sys.  I tried recovery console and ran chkdsk \r with no luck either.  I initially posted in the malware forum where it was suggested I download and burn otlpe.iso and burn it to a disk.  Then change boot order in the bios to boot from CD.  I did this but can't seem to boot from CD drive.  I would appreciate any suggestions anyone on the board may have.
