Windows XP Hybernate Mode OFF

Hello,

I have a windows xp workstation that got a virus and it continues to go into hybernate mode.  I have gone into the power properties of the system and turned off hybernate (set it to never).

Are there other places this could be triggered?

If there are multiple user profiles (not on a domain) can one be set to hybernate and take over?

I am checking if the virus still has something going on but until then I want to keep it from going into hybernate mode.

check msconfig and startup items, if there is something unusual
check scheduled tasks if there is something
check Event logs if there is  some system logs in time when it is going hibernate

What was the virus you got? And how did you clean it up?

Is it possible to boot up in safe mode with command prompt and type rstrui.exe to restore your computer to an earlier time (if the infection was recent)?

I did find two items that look suspicious in the msconfig.  I disabled them.
Nothing in the event viewer or scheduled tasks.

Running another antivirus scan, am finding some threats but they could be spyware "cookies".
