xp wont boot....safe mode hangs on installing driver lcbtndev.sys what can i do?

tried to boot up my system this morning, I run unhackme and it hung on on the splash screen saying the driver was active.

I restarted the machine using last known good configuration, same result

I rebooted in safe mode but the last instruction listed is the install of driver lcbtndev.sys then it hangs

Any ideas on what i can/should do?

Hi bodell3,

It's possible that when you ran unhackme that if it found any infections that it took out parts of your OS with it. I have seen this happen before. You can try to use your XP cd and do a repair and see if that fixes the problem, before doing that though I suggest you take the hard drive out of your machine and put it into another computer as slave and backup any data you want to save. If the repair doesn't work your best bet would be to format and do a fresh reinstall of XP.

Unhackme creates a restore point before it runs.  You should be able to restore to this restore point or an earlier one.
One way to do this is via a PE disk such as UBCD4Win:

Go to Start - Programs - Registry Tools - Registry Restore wizard.

If you have an XP CDF, boot to the recovery console.

At the prompt, type "listsvc" (no quotes)

See if the offending driver/service is listed.

If so, type in the following

disable lcbtndev.sys    

reboot and test
