    HELP - Yesterday my XP quickly went through all the stages of infiltration by the Blaster worm, including RPC captions and random forced shutdowns. Unfortunately I was unable to secure a fix and used SYS RESTORE before I learned NOT to do that!

    Now when I try to go into safe mode the screen fills with lines of text -- mostly looks like a listing of sys32 files -- and I am seemingly locked out of any actions.

    Is there some other way I can go into safe mode and/or make any meaningful changes, or should I seek professional help?? At least I have access to another computer...
