    t hangs immediately after i log in. and couldnt do anything.

    Something is wrong, but I still got access in SAFE mode but what should i do.

    It have an error message about something regrading "missing null directory" if i remember correctly.

    An the few video player are Crystal Player and a DVD player if i am not wrong should be FTT player, And BS player. One of this file must have contained the virus.

    Kinda Urgent. I have some school work in the PC, but now i cant continue....

    Not to sure of os2000, do u have option of booting to last known config that worked when you press F8 during startup?.
    Do you have a system restore point you can go back to?
    Can you type in a command prompt scanreg / restore to get a earlier registry back?

    Just a few ideas.

    No scanreg / restore doesnt work on 2000.

    I updated my norton using a update file i download from another PC.
    becoz i couldnt get access to the internet in safe mode!!!!!

    I did a full scan but no Virus is Found.

    Could restoring of my registry helps? IF possible, how do i do them?

    Scenario :

    after login.

    I am still able to move my mouse.

    But it is completely blank on my desktop.

    The only thing that react is the start button. I click start and control panel .

    And it HANG!!!!!

    i tried ct-alt-delete to get into task manager but doesnt response.

    Guess my alternative is to go back into safe mode.
    But other than doing a virus scan , what can i do???
