happy new year
this is our 1st post so please excuse any mistakes!
we have a serious problem with the following and before we start posting in hijack section (dont want to waste anyones time if its simple!) we thought we would outline here...
sys: vaio vgc-v2m running xp home sp2 3.0ghz 512mb
apps: spybot 1.4 / trojan hunter / ewido / spyware doctor / freeregistryfix / ccleaner (the nuts!) / avast antivirus (takes ages with this lot for a boot even when it was working!)
the problem...after running everything in order as discribed in the "before you post hijack log file" to the letter...it found many dirty scumy malwares, trojans and other stuff (so thanks already).
the system WILL NOT boot in safe mode, in fact any other mode than normal will not work !!!!
there is a blue screen shortly after pressing F8 to force safe mode that appears BEFORE the xp system gets a chance to go to safe mode the blue screen has some writting, but only appears for 2 secs, we think it says something to do with "error in system" but really cant read it as too fast....
PLEASE advise if there is a simple way to get safe mode boot or fix this...or should we post reports?
thank you all for a prompt response!!!
great forums by the way and no bulls*it like some others !!!!
