I am running on XP Home Edition and every time that i try to boot up i select my username from our 4 family user profiles like usual and when the desktop appears the icons flash on for 1/2 second and then go away. this happens repeatedly without stopping and i can't get into my computer. this happens on all of our user profiles. i reinstalled windows twice and the problem continued. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Carmen

Hi Carmen If you press Ctrl+Alt+Del and log off and log back in a few times, does the problem go away or not?

the few times that i have been able to get the control alt del command to work it has not changed anything. i have rebooted repeatedly and logged in under all of our usernames.

Hi Carmen, Try this: When you manage to get the Task Manager window to show up (Ctrl+Alt+Del) switch to the Processes tab and look for the process SYSU.EXE If you find it then end it and see if your desktop gets back to normal or not. If it does then let me know and I'll tell you how to completely remove the virus. :)
