    I was working on my laptop last night no problems, I shut down normally and return a few hours later, now the thing wont start past XP splash screen (the little blue bars moves across the screen forever), the only way I can get my system going is to start in safe mode. The last time I ran the system I did not install any new hardware or software. I have been battling some spyware recently, namely one called Antivirus 2009. I removed it via Malwarebytes the other day, it came back once, I removed it again and it seems to be gone still. What can I do to fix this? I also cannot run Malwarebytes in safe mode, whenever I do it it freezes my about a minute into the scan on a the follwing item

    c:\windows\system32\msobjs.dll

    I will post a HJT log below just incase it helps.

    XP home or Pro?

    If it is Home, when you load in safe mode it logs into the hidden administrator account, this may explain what your issue is, a corrupt user account, so when in safe mode create a new user account with admin rights, then reboot the system and see if you can log into the new account, if it does then see this article for moving your old profile to the new account, use the new account for several weeks, when satisfied with it, delete the old corrupt account.

    Scroll down to "Moving to a new user profile"

    Im not sure. I think it might be home. When I right click on my computer it says the following. This is all the info I see. So would this mean it's HOME or PRO?

    Microsoft Windows XP
    Media Center Edition
    Version 2002

    You could try system restore and try to restore your laptop to a date before it messed up.

    Oh, thats MCE, same as Pro with some media add-ons.

    If you can get into safe mode, I would still try to create a new account, see if you can log into it normally, if so, follow the rest of the instructions.

    If you get the same result as the original account (hang), then suspect a driver or software that is hanging the system when it is trying to load.

    In safe mode use msconfig to disable (untick) third party startup items one at a time, see if it will boot normally again. A process of elimination.
