No logon in normal or safe mode (XP) after Malware performed "removal after reboot"

Recommended Posts

Hi - I am mending an XP PC and malwarebytes found a virus in "embdtrst.dll" which is said it couldn't delete and would to after a restart.

Well it restarted but I now get a blank screen with just the mouse pointer and no logon. CTL-ALT-DEL does not work. Same in Safe mode with the addition of the "safe mode text".

I read a near identical post on here where someone suggested installing another XP in another folder and then using that install to access the original Xp install to then email you some files/configs.

Could you help me with this? Which data would you need?

Thanks in advance
