While running a repair on Windows XP Pro, it goes into Safe Mode

I have a computer that I removed Malware (FBI virus and others).  It would not boot.   I ran Seagate diags and the hard drive passed.  It did suggest looking to see if Seagate has any updates to Firmware.  There were not any.   So I started a repair from the XP CD.   When it got to the first reboot, it keeps rebooting into Safe Node then it says  " The system is not fully installed.  Please run setup again.   Any ideas why it reboots and goes into Safe Mode?  Any ideas what to do without formatting and re-installing?

Is it an HP system by any chance?  If so, go here, and start at post #9:

No, it is not an HP, it is a custom built computer.   I searched the drive for setres.log like it said under the link, but there is no file by that name.   Any other suggestions?
