Earlier today the system was infected with psguard.
Removal with ewido & spybot seemed to be going okay.
Spybot reported being unable to remove a few files due to files in use and asked to run again on startup. Chose okay.
Since then the system will not start up, gets to 'Welcome' screen & hangs.
Booting into Safe Mode results in an hour glass when the cursor is over the start button. Double clicking or right clicking an icon doesn't do anything.
Attempting a repair installation which proceeded to 'installing devices' 35 minutes to go and the system is once again hung.
I would appreciate any suggestions on this one . . .
