Hi Guys,

I'm running windows xp, user complaint of not being able to open certain programs, i ran disk clean up, and a spy remover and anti virus to clean up some spyware and virus etc... several virus and spyware was detected and remove.

after restarting the computer every attempt to log on under every profile fails, it appears to be logging on, then you see the message "logging off"... and it logs me back out...
i cannot get back in.. either local or on the network.
I suspect it might be a virus but i am not sure...i cant get in to clean it again..
i tried recovering for last know good configuration... that doesn't work
i am tring to do a repair from the windows cd... but for some reason, when i get the prompt to boot from the cd and i press any button it won't respond, i know the keyboard is working.. so i am at a lost at the moment

I'm wondering if anyone has ever had this problem and can help me...PLEASE!!!!!!

Hi and welcome to GeekstoGo
First do you have windows XP CD?
If you do you can boot into recovery console and run sfc /scannow
this would replace any damaged modules on your machine from the CD.

I click r, get to recovery console, type 1 and enter, then my password.

After that, then what?

I typed sfc /scannow and nothing happens

I also tried something /rebuild but i didn't know what to type when it asked questions

In my experience, you can't run sfc from the RC.

Also, in my experience, the best fix for this problem is a Repair Install of Windows.
