Hi and welcome to TSF.
I've merged your threads as it could cause complications with different solutions being given to what is basically the same problem. It's possible you have danmaged some system files during the clean up. First of all, are you absolutely sure you've got rid opf the virus? If so, the first thing to try is repairing these files using the System File Checker. Only do this if you have SP2 on your installation disc. Otherwise you will need to slipstream SP2 to the installation disc. Follow these steps (courtesy of Cahuffeur2)
Insert the Windows® XP CD in your drive. (Hold down the Shift Key
to prevent it from starting.)
Go Start > Run
...in the box type in sfc /scannow
…please take note of the space between the sfc
and the /
This is the System File Checker...it will scan all the Windows® core system files to ensure that they are in their respective correct places, and if not replace them from the CD.
During the scan you may be asked to Insert the CD
, if this happens just go retry
and let it do its thing.
One important point:
is running, it is not advisable
to do any other work, or have any browsers/programs running on the computer, until the scan is complete. (This process will generally take around 45-65 minutes to complete).
Once finished, remove the CD and reboot your machine...all should be "Normal" (hopefully).
