Very recently removed "Security Tool" virus but now have contracted sdra64.exe, know how to delete it, but the problem has got mysteriously worse.
When logging in on Admin(or any) account, it logs me straight back out, how can I get my windows XP to stay logged on, long enough to solve the problem? (It logs me out a second after I log in, even in safemode)
I can't run it with the command prompt because I can't GET to the command prompt otherwise I'd use it to get to the system restore screen, help?

Hi,

Please do the following:


I hope you have acces to a PC that can burn CD's



We will need to make a BOOT CD

Print these instruction out so that you know what you are doing.

Two programs to download

First

Please downloadISOBurner and save it to your desktop. This program will allow you to burn OTLPE.ISO to make a bootable CD
  • Double click the ISOBurner set up icon to install the program, from there on in it is fairly automatic.
  • There are Instructions for the iso burner here if you need them.

Second

  • Download OTLPE.iso save it to your desktop. Now burn OTLPE.iso to a CD using ISO Burner. {NOTE: This file is 292Mb in size so it may take some time to download.)
  • When downloaded double click OTLPE.iso > this will then open ISOBurner to burn the file to CD

  • Reboot the infected system using the boot CD you just created.
    Note : If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from CD follow the steps here
  • Your system should now display a REATOGO-X-PE desktop.
  • you will find an icon on the desktop called OTLPE > Double-click on the OTLPE icon.
  • When asked "Do you wish to load the remote registry", select Yes
  • When asked "Do you wish to load remote user profile(s) for scanning", select Yes
  • Ensure the box "Automatically Load All Remaining Users" is checked and press OK
  • OTL should now start. Change the following settings
    • Change Drivers to SafeList
  • Press Run Scan to start the scan.
  • When finished, the file will be saved**in drive C:\OTL.txt
  • Copy this file to your USB drive if you do not have internet connection on this system
  • Please post the contents of the C:\OTL.txt file in your reply.

Does it have the Recovery Console installed? If so are you able to boot to the Recovery Console?

Do you have access to an installation disk?

What OS is the laptop in question?

Can it boot from a USB stick?

when did the logon / logoff loop start?

what files were deleted prior to this starting? do you recall the names of those files?

what programs have you run or did your AV remove some bad files?
