Start the System Restore tool at a command prompt

1. Restart your computer, and keep tapping F8 during the initial start-up until you get options, select Safe Mode with a command prompt then press enter.

2. Log on to your computer with an administrator account or with an account that has administrator credentials.

3. Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:


%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

4. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to an earlier state.

Look for a system checkpoint

For additional information about the Safe mode with a command prompt, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

A description of the Safe mode boot options in Windows XP

If this runs OK, you may have re-instated the virus files you removed

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD and get a blue progress bar, reboot when the bar goes


Alternatively, you may need to boot the PC, keep tapping F8 until you get options, select safe mode with command prompt then type sfc /scannow and press enter, or type sfc /scannonce then press enter, then reboot

Once you have done this, use any installation disc for any programme which is on the PC and install / re-install it, reboot and check the programme runs

If you are unable to do any of the above, then download the programmes from the malware removal guide with another PC, save them to CDR and load them on to the PC with problems
