Try this out..

1).
Un-install system mechanic 6.0.

2).
Repair Windows.
Re-boot your computer with the Windows disk and select "R" if XP or "Repair" If Vista.
And follow the on screen instructions.

3). Completely shutdown your computer, wait 5 seconds and then re-boot.
........................................
OR:

Repair Install

If XP is corrupted to the point where none of the previous solutions get it to boot,
you can do a Repair Install that might work as well as keep the current settings.
Make sure you have your valid WindowsXP key.
The whole process takes about half an hour depending on your computer
If you are being prompted for the administrator's password, you need to choose the 2nd repair option, not the first.
1.Insert and boot from your WindowsXP CD
2.At the second R=Repair option, press the R key
3.This will start the repair
4.Press F8 for I Agree at the Licensing Agreement
5.Press R when the directory where WindowsXP is installed is shown. Typically this is C:\WINDOWS
6.It will then check the C: drive and start copying files
7.It will automatically reboot when needed. Keep the CD in the drive.
8.You will then see the graphic part of the repair that is like during a normal install of XP (Collecting Information, Dynamic Update, Preparing Installation, Installing Windows, Finalizing Installation)
9.When prompted, click on the Next button
10.When prompted, enter your XP key
11.Normally you will want to keep the same Workgroup or Domain name
12.The computer will reboot
13.Then you will have the same screens as a normal XP Install
14.Activate if you want (usually a good idea)
15.Register if you want (but not necessary)
16.Finish
17.At this point you should be able to log in with any existing accounts.

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.

If you are not running Antivirus you are probably infected

by Jacky Howe In reply to Registry and Installation

Click on Start, Run and type in msconfig and press Enter. Select the Startup Tab.
<br><br>
You are looking for any oddly named files eg: qrxz.exe
<br><br>
These files can be found mainly in two locations. 1 The Registry and 2 %windir%.
<br><br>
1.
<br><br>
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
<br><br>
2.
<br><br>
C:\WINDOWS C:\WINDOWS\system32
<br><br>
3.
<br><br>
To find the location for the Registry entry, expand the Location column to find the Registry Key.
<br><br>
Click Start, Run and type in regedt32 and press Enter. Then navigate to 1. In the right hand pane you will see a reference to qrxz.exe, right click on it and select Delete. If there were more oddly named files delete them as well. Exit Registry Editor.
<br><br>
4.
<br><br>
To find the location for the Executable File expand the Command column and take note of the Directory.
<br><br>
Click Start, right click My Computer and select Explore, Navigate to the Directory that was noted. Highlight the file and hoding down the Shift Key press Delete. Repeat this process for any other files found.

The Key is to find out the Name of the Virus. Once you have that you can use Google to find the Removal Tools. From another PC download and install these two programs and copy the the installed folders to a USB Stick.
<br><br>

Download Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.5.2 and install it. Update it. http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html


<br><br>
Download Sophos and the latest IDE Files. Install it and extract the IDE files to the C:\SAV32CLI folder.
http://www.sophos.com/support/knowledgebase/article/13251.html
<br><br>
Copy and paste the below two lines into Notepad and save the file to the USB Stick as sophos.bat, it will scan and remove. When it has finished check the Log File for the names of anything that can't be removed.
<br><br>
===============================
<br><br>
CD SAV32CLI
<br><br>
SAV32CLI -REMOVE -P=C:\REMOVLOG.TXT
<br><br>
===============================

I would try sfc /scannow and see if that fixes it.
