There are deep discussions here about how to edit BOOT.INI and a google.com on BOOT.INI tells all.
Try the Virus and Security Forum and ask "How do I avoid Spyware?"
Free firewalls and antivirus can be had too so... you can use the machine again.
After messing my computer up trying to remove some spyware, I reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled windows xp. Now when I turn the computer on it boots to a screen asking me to select the operating system. 2 choices and both are windows xp home. I can select either and windows then opens normally. I do see in system comfigation utility under boot.ini that I have partition 1 windows xp and partition 2 windows xp. No internet connection yet, no anti virus software yet either..still waiting for sp2 disk to install that before I move back on the net.
