windows xp automatic log off virus?

By bnichols04 ·
I am having serious problems with my machine. i recently did a virus scan and after the reboot i was stuck in the automatic log off loop. i think that my anti virus moved my registries and now i can't even get on in safe mode as the administrator. I have tried to boot off of my xp cd but i just get a blank screen with the small line at the top. I have tried to get a floppy boot but i don't know the command prompts after i get to the black screen with the A showing. I would like to save the stuff i have on the machine now but it is not that important. the only other in the house is a mac so i am limited. any help would be appreciated!

Boot off the Optical Drive before the HDD and save the changes as you exited the BIOS?

Assuming that the Optical Drive was working previously there is no reason that it wouldn't be working now.

Just a thought here if the rest is OK did you check the Data Face of the Install Disc for damage, marks?
