After the Windows splash screen, Black screen of Death. Have attempted and executed:
1. Recover Startup
2. Ultimate Boot CD for Windows, scanned and removed virus programs detected
3. Avira Rescue CD, scanned and removed virus programs detected
4. Determined that the registry "shell" value should be "explorer.exe" BUT keeps getting changed to CMD.EXE /K START CMD.EXE.
I see this type of post on several forums, please consider giving me assistance...
