I am running a windows xp machine running sp2. One day after running spybot search and destroy it said it couldn't remove some things and that i should restart the computer and let spybot start before anything else so it can remove the file because it was obviously in use by somthing else. After the restart, i couldn't get into windows. I could get to the log in screen, but whenever i logged in, it would flash the desktop and then log off. I tried putting the drive in another computer running windows 98 so i could remove spy bot, but that did nothing. I also tried to boot into safe mode with command prompt to run system restore, but i couldn't get passed the log in screen. Do you have any suggestions that dont involve reinstalling windows?
