I've seen alot of posts about this issue, but mine seems somewhat unique. Let me try and describe the problem in the most organized way possible. Windows is freezing at the startup screen. I can get to the login screen if I use any of the safemode options, but once I put in my password and attempt to log in it says loading settings and freezes there. The cause of this problem could be any number of things that went terribly wrong last night. The first issue I had last night was a virus I caught on my system from a video on the website stupidity.com...ironic. This virus, although I don't remember the name, caused dll's that firefox uses to dissappear randomly. I attempted to run a virus scan to fix the issue, but the windows kept freezing. While I was in the promise of attempting to find this virus, I was also attempting to uninstall a Dealio toolbar from my internet explorer browser. During the uninstall process, the system would freeze for about 30 seconds, and then move again, and then freeze again and so on. Earlier in the night I had run spysweeper and deleted some missing registry files, again I can't recall what these were. I'm not sure which of these three problems caused this issue, or maybe a combination of all three; I was hoping some of you would be able to help me out.

Also, I tried the "last known good configuration" option to no avail. Same problem there. I have no idea where my XP disc is so any option using that i'm out of luck on
