Windows XP hangs on logon screen in all modes. Eventually it loads after about 30 minutes but is unresponsive - cpu memory and disk all seem to be working fine - so seems like its a virus/malware/spyware .
Found some virus files when putting hd into another computer w32 stration. Managed to delete them. Also found suspicious ifcconf.exe is startup RUN in regostry and deleted. When I try and open eventviewer - which opens after a long time - I cannot open any event as I get the error the RPC Server could not be contacted. Also services comes up with an error .
Please note that the system is basically unusable.
Anything you can suggest before I go ahead with a repair/reinstall
