I accidently executed an infected file and NAV started to detect + delete them straight away. After about 5 pop ups saying NAV had deleted viruses it shut down and I got a hoax desktop wallpaper saying my computer had been infected... please follow these steps. (SpySheriff I think the virus is called)
I then reset - it just freezes at "Windows is starting up..." screen
I can only log into Safe Mode now. From here I disabled System Restore points, and proceeded to scan for viruses. Using:
ad aware, spy sweeper, spybot S&D, ccleaner.
I have managed to delete all the virus (I think). But when I reset into normal mode it still freezes at the same "Windows is starting up screen..."
After repeating this several times I decided to try another option. I booted up with the WinXP Home cd-rom to repair my windows installation. This gets me into normal mode, I do all checks for viruses and its clean. However soon as I reset and restart I'm back to where I started... freezing at "windows is starting up"
Does anyone know why its doing this? I'm desperate to get it sorted.
