    Go back to Safe mode


    And select diagnostic startup

    Restart, if that works, run MSCONFIG again (in Normal mode now) and begin turning on one group at a time

    It may be in the Startup group

    Hmm Oh dear!

    Well you still have Repair Windows, but if virus/Malware present, then it is possible to lose data.

    How important is your data ?

    If not so much, maybe time for Full re-install.

    Otherwise you could try the Repair option (risking data)

    yeah..reinstalling the windows is still an option...what im afraid of is when this kind of virus spreads here at the ofis...almost 700 pc's is under my care and i hate to think that i have to reinstall all of them O__O
