For days now, I have only been able to get into my computer via the Administrator profile in safe mode. Any attempts to get into normal mode only gives me a few minutes before whatever this is kicks in and says there is a potential hdd failure. Once a profile is affected - its useless - even safe mode reflects that. I managed to create one and run Hijack This! (renamed as Dabo) before the infection stopped me and then returned to safe mode to retrieve the log. I couldn't attach the log so I copy / pasted: [HJT log removed by Broni] I hope someone can help me, otherwise I face a format and lengthy reinstall.
