My laptop was infected with an internet virus so while I was following the steps in "Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide" I installed the free antivirus Avast!. After the quick scan the program asked my for a reboot scan. Since I was trying to hurry up I made a mistake and delete all the corrupted or infected files. Some of them were from the windows directory and after re-booting I can't get into windows. The account that I have does not have a passwor so when I click on it it says: "Loading personal settings" and it says right away: "Logging off", and "Saving personal settings". It looks like my profiles files were deleted and now I can't get into windows. Even if I try in safe mode the administrator accout logs in and logs right out. Any suggestions? By the way I have a system restore point, but since I have no access to windows I can't run it. Is there a way to run this through DOS? Or what can I do?

Thanks in advance,

Cristian.

At this point I'm just trying to access my hard drive and look into my favorites file. I have an internet address that I need to use for an emergency and I can't access my laptop. I was thinking to reboot and get a DOS prompt, but I don't have a bootable CD. Can someone help me to access the computer to find my file? or How can I create a simple bootable CD?

Thanks again,

Cristian.
