Malwarebytes froze and now Windows won't boot


Recommended Posts

Dunno if this is the right place to post, but I'm guessing it is--

First off--I'm running Windows XP on a Dell Inspiron desktop tank. Don't remember exact stats, but it's new, so it has a fast processor (medium-of-the-line of what's out there now Intel-wise) and lotsa RAM.

I've been battling a nasty bit of malware that was hijacking everything, and during those few glorious moments I was able to sneak through and get a Malwarebytes definitions update, 20 - 40 new things would be found. Also, McAfee kept noticing and removing an Artemis! trojan.

So the last time I was able to run Malwarebytes a bunch of stuff was found (Trojans and DNS changers, mostly). While MWB was quarantining one of these files everything froze. EVERYTHING. No CTRL-ALT-DELETE or anything. After doing a hard shutdown, it now won't boot--it gets just beyond showing the Dell logo, asking for boot/setup options (so I do have BIOS access) and if I want to boot from a CD, and then nothing.

The screen goes black and nothing moves--however, the power light is on on the keyboard, so I'm hoping this is simply some sort of driver issue.

I can run Recovery Console off the XP installation disc, so I have access there. (I've tried Repair installs, but it gets to the place where the computer has to reboot and nothing happens again.) I was also able to go in with an AVG Rescue CD, which found 39 viruses (which I "Renamed"), but nothing changed other than that.

The night before I was running this final scan I ran mbw and Hijackthis logs, just in case. (I hadn't gotten to the point of doing DeFogger, &c.). These are below, in case they provide any useful information. (I tried to format these so they're easily glanced at. Sorry if I pasted them in wrong.)

Any help on this will be EVER so appreciated. And there's a chance I'll name my firstborn after those who help me.
