  • three XP machines, same problem, same day - virus?

    I'm trying to fix a Windows XP machine right now and I'm stuck.

    It boots just fine up to the Windows XP logo screen, then the monitor goes black as if it's going to continue to the next screen...and it doesn't. The screen just stays black.

    When I try to boot it up in Safe Mode, it loads to a black screen with the "Safe Mode" label on each corner on the screen & the version information at the top. The cursor loads...and that's it.

    Ideas?

    I just discovered that the two other XP machines in the room are having the exact same problem this one is. Last week, they were all working perfectly fine.

    The only thing they have directly in common that I can think of is last week we installed and ran "LabSim: for A+ Core Hardware" on the XP machines and one '98 machine (the one I'm on now, which works just fine). Other than that, the only thing I can think of is that we've been using the internet, but I can't think of any websites we've been to that I don't go to on my XP machine at home. The fact that all three XP machines started having the same problem at the same time makes me suspicious...

    Are there any viruses you guys know of that could match the description of what's happening to the XP machines?
    Peep out my new track - "Whaleface (Reintroduction)"

    have you been able to re- boot them to regular mode?

    if they automatically go into safemode, have u tried holding 'F8' then loading last know good configuration... then run a virus scan
