    I have owned my Toshiba Laptop for 4 years and have had no problems with it.
    I loaded Keperksy virus programme from PC user disc and the next time I turned my lapptop on it loaded and came up to a logon screen for windows xp. I have never had this screen come up before in the 4 years that I have owned it. I have tried escape, enter, all the passwords that I use and noting has worked.I have tried all the usernames and even the previous persons username and all I can get is the desktop screen with no icons on it, if you know what I mean.
    I downloaded boot discs and can load to the A: prompt, I can change this to C: and even Windows but the only command that seems to work is Dir.
    Can someone advise me as to how to get my PC back to normal.
    I have tried to boot using F8 in safemode but when it loads it goes to the logon screen. It loads Windows for about 10 seconds and then logs out.
    I have no original discs for using to reload windows xp.
    It is the Kaspersky programme that has altered something.
    I cannot get into my PC setup to type regedit at the run command.
    Thanks in advance

    I have a friend with exactly the same problem oldtoyboy - so I'll watch this thread with great interest!

    I searched the forum and found this thread... but as Safe Mode does exactly what you're describing, I'm in a similar situation.

    I feel it is a virus as it has occurred to two identical computers my friend is running on her home network... too coincidental and as her answer to "do you have antivirus?" was "I think so..." I'm not sure as to her level of protection before I came into the picture.

    I think we'll need a virus boot disk (I think PC-Cillin used to do one years back)
