    I have been goin through and taking help from various threads here and I appreciate every person who is supporting others in some way or another .. THis is a great team work. Kudos to all.
    Coming to my problem, My Computer Acer 1640, Windows Home edition, with 512mb was infected with Advanced Virus Remover. Initially disabled every Windows utility of my computer and then my system went dead (black screen). Safe mode was no better. Eventually one day, my lap gave me a desktop on safe mode and i went on to create a new user with all administrative rights. This might sound stupid, but i am not a computer whiz and jus did thing my way. Then using the new user, i went into registry and also local services. In local services i was able to start my McAfee and run a scan. Although this was not that helpful since my networking was not available, it did motivate me to look further. Eventually one day, I could get my internet working in safe mode. I downloaded Malwarebytes and it cleaned up most of the rubbish. I still was restricted from using Systerm restore and many other functions but using registry edit, i figured to activate system restore. But my current problem is that i am not able to log on to windows normally even though i tried doin the same using F8 option.

    I wanted to restore my system to a previous date and get it runnign properly and this is possible only if i can log bak to windows normally.

    pls help

    I appreciate eveyrone who has taken time to read thru this, thank u
