Cannot logon to windows due to virus

By helpmeplease2

  1. My computer has a Win:32 Vitro virus and while I was in the middle of removing it, my computer crashed. Now I turn my computer on, it goes to Windows and asks for the HP_Administrators password. When I hit enter (there is no password) it starts to logon but then suddendly says logging off and goes back to the logon screen. To finish removing the virus I need to be able to logon. Is there any way that I can fix this without taking my computer to an expert, because I cannot afford to have it fixed by someone.

    I would be very greatful to anyone who can help me.

    Try booting into safe mode (press F8 before Windows starts to load) or using a recovery CD from Avira which scans outside of Windows.

    Thanks,

    Same thing happens in safemode. Where do I get a recovery cd that boots outside of windows?

    Boot to the Recovery Console.
