I recently managed to get that nasty spysheriff program onto my computer at work (no idea how it got there). This was on Wednesday, and I was working on cleaning up my PC and eventually ran out of time. I had Thursday off and now I came in this morning thinking I was going to have to spend a good chunk of the day gettin this thing off. Well, now I can't even boot up my computer...not even in safe mode. I can log in to our network, or onto the computer itself OK, but once it "loads" I get nothing but a blank screen...pressing ctrl+ alt+del and going into the task manager shows nothing that shouldnt be in there, although when I'm not in safe mode I can't even get into the task manager at all :-(

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated...I'm running XP Professional.

My only idea was to find the XP disk and repair from that...but I can't boot from a disk either, not even a floppy.

I'd love to post a hijackthis log, but ya know, I can't even get to my desktop so that's sort've not happening :-(

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go! :tazz: I'm kool808 and I will be helping you today.

If you are not able to run it through desktop or C:\HJT then you have to use the Task Manager, available through CTRL+ALT+DELETE then choose New Task.
