Default Part 2: More XP Problems

I've about had it with XP. I've split my 250 into a nice partition, one for system, one for everything else and now I can't boot past the windows loading screen. For some reason, it simply stops in its tracks and reboots, then i'm prompted to either start normally or at the last known configuration which i've been shifting between lately. I have checked for virus, spyware and now i'm at my wits end of the problem, right after an update i have this issue and i've recently repaired the drive...

funny thing about the repair, my system install is amongst the lower partitions..G:drive, so when it 'repairs' the disk locates it under "C" and i feel while that doesn't matter, there still isn't anything there. Any ideas?

With all the errors and problems you are having. Yeah format and isntall again. It seems that is the only way you will figure out what is going on. Beyond doing MemTest86, and removeing all yoru hardware to test each piece indivually to see if any of them are causing issues.

What about Driver conflicts? Have you isntalled newer drivers without removing the old ones first?

Okay let me saw a couple of things here. For Vista there were some updates sent out on Jan 8th that have caused a few problem for people. You are not in Vista so they do not apply to you.

There hasnt been any updates to XP that have affected people like this. Not that i have seen thru the newsgroups that i have been working with.

So my guess that the removal of XP is causing this. If you really wish to remove IE in XP i would suggest you create a custom install disc using nlite. If i am not mistaken they can remove IE from the install and still keep it stable.

I agree. It's bad news to try to remove IE. If you have 250 gigs, why bother? IE is nothing compared to 250 gigs. Just install Firefox or Opera or something and make that the default browser, and you don't even have to know IE is on there. It will save you a lot of pain and tears to just leave it on there.

alright, well, my system right now is running stable, the only infection i have(go figure) thus far is a virus linked to 'command.exe' right now it hasn't done anything malicious, but AVG and spybot know it's there. I've run through the smitfraudfix in safemode and the process is still there when i boot regularly, i read up online and there are issues with it but nothiing i've seen in stone of how to remove it.

Check with Osiris in the Virus area. He will know what to do. Best bet. Try running combofix.

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe

After that get HiJack This and post a log.

Trend Micro HijackThis - Reviews and free Trend Micro HijackThis downloads at Download.com

That will let us know what is going on.

The log looks good. I don't see anything out of the ordinary there. Do you have SP2? If not make sure Windows Messenger is turned off.
