    After running SpyBot and allowing the program to fix the found errors, I now get the above message. I can only log on through safemode.

    Please advise. I don't have the Windows XP CDs. Please help.

    Actually command.com is invoked by Spybot - it wants to remove the remaining files but can't. Here's how to fix it:
    Get into regedit (Start -> run -> tye 'regedit' (no quotes), hit enter).
    Go to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
    In there you will see some Spybot entries (possibly a lot of them!) - delete them all and reboot.

    Or simply boot into safemode and do a sytem restore to a point prior to spybot scan
    spybot is garbage in my opinion here is a few alternitaves i cant reccomend you scan with any particular one but i use malwarebytes. it great and free
