my wifes computer is non-operable due to a Winlogon.exe virus. The computer was left on overnight and when we came to it in the morning, it was going through a series of loggon and log-offs all by itself. Each logon sequence would end with a Fatal System error (on a blue screen) and then it would restart.... I shut off the computer and restarted it in safe mode and ran AVG Anti Virus. It ran for 48 min and identified Winlogon.exe virus described as Win32/PEPatch.AL. it was still running the antivirus when the computer rebooted all by itself and began the sequence as described earlier. Now, I cannot logon in safe mode (it goes through the reboot sequence). I do have a Dell Resouce disk that is Windows 2000 Setup. When booted from the CD drive, it allows me to either set-up Windows or Repair Windows. When I run repair windows, it offers me a Console repair options that brings me to the C:\WINNT> Is there anything that can be done to resolve this? We cannot loose the information stored on that computer as it is critical (now understanding the significance of backing up !!). I appreciate your help.
