    I have a Dell Inspiron 1100 running WinXP which is infected with Trojan Virtuemonde,Rootkit.Agent, and probably more.
    I can't post a HJT log because: I boot up, the screen finally appears with icons but before I can start a program, the icons disappear and only the background is there and nothing happens. Then the icons will reappear in 10 to 30 seconds and then disappear again. If I do get to click on an icon, the progran won't load and then it goes blank again. This process repeats continually.
    I have tried a reinstall of XP, but it won't read the CD. Tried clicking on the icon for HijackThis and it wouldn't load.
    I did get it to run Spy Doctor. It did identify the malware above, but would not remove it. Said there were 238 infections!

    Is there any way to run a removal program using a flash drive or what approach should I take?
