windows setup screen on reboot

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win98.gen_discussion (More info?)

Hi all,

I've looked and have not found a good solution to this....

after running spybot S&D on a win98se computer spybot says it needs to
reboot to remove 2 items.

I've done this before (other machines) and spybot comes up and runs ,then it
goes into windows normally.

on this machine , on the reboot it goes directly to the windows loing screen
, then asks for the installation key.

I did not want to chance a over-top install so i used scanreg /restore to
revert back.

so now it has all the malware back , but works

has anybody run into this ?

thks!

    I haven't run into that, no....but first of all, instead of having SpyBot fix
    anything, you might post back with a list of what it found. Better yet, don't use
    SpyBot to clean this particular machine. Install Ad-Aware SE Personal, and try it
    instead, along with CWShredder.

    CWShredder, the CoolWeb removal tool, is available here:
    http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3019.html
    http://aumha.org/downloads/cwshredder.zip
    Close all browser windows and open apps, start CWShredder and click the Fix button.

    Install Ad-Aware SE free Personal Edition, start it, click its 'Check for Updates'
    link in the app to install updates, then use it to scan your system, and remove what
    it finds.

    If you still have malware after that, use Hijack This
