So, last night I was on my laptop (Dell Latitude D620) and got a little malware pop up in the bottom right of the screen. I knew from recent previous experience that this was a baaad thing. I started exiting out of programs, preparing to do a system restore, or try something to prevent a complete virus takeover. Things started to freeze, and in a panic I manually shut off the computer. Then, when I tried to start it up, I get the Dell screen, but after that there was just a black screen with a white lined bar at the bottom, which seemed to start loading something, but then stopped. I tried booting in safe mode, and when I do that, the about 7 lines of the programming or whatever appear, as usual, but then it suddenly freezes and won't continue. I run Windows XP. I have been able to get into the windows operating system disk. I went into Windows Recovery Console and ran chkdsk. It found something corrupted or wrong, so I ran chkdsk /r which I think fixes that? When I restarted, I still don't get past the dell screen. I tried booting from a Ultimate Boot disk, and that didn't seem to work either. When I said to boot to a drive, the screen just went black. Any recommendations? Help please!!
