    Hi.

    I uninstalled my wireless card and software on my Dell Laptop equipped with Windows XP SP3. I attempted to start it in safe mode to do a virus scan. All I get now is the safe mode, with the cmd.exe window with C:\Documents and Settings\Joe> and a blinking cursor. When I restart, I press F8 and choose "start windows normally" and "last known good configuration" to no avail. No matter what option I pick, it brings me right back to this screen. I need help ASAP, I am at work and I need to have access to my laptop. Forget the scan, all I want now is for Windows to load normally so I can go about my business. If anyone could give me an idea of what went wrong here I would really appreciate it. Thank you.
