I have an XP Pro computer which has had an attempted repair done. It hangs during device installation with 33 mnutes left to go. I believe this is symptomatic of the context plus spyware.
Using Shift F10 I opened the add/remove window but ContextPlus was not listed. I then tried to run the apropos fixing software (http://swandog46.gee.../aproposfix.exe) but it would not run properly - presumably because it wasn't in SafeMode.
I rebooted to the Recovery Console and tried running it, but the commands are protected and it won't run. How can I run the software? Do I have to mount it in another computer and if I do, what about the registry?

Welcome to Geeks to Go JohnDecker. This problem would be best handled in our malware forum:
