    I searched the Internet what to do about the problem on the subject, and one forum said that this is caused by removing viruses with McAfee anti-virus (which I did). They suggested to fix that through msconfig but the msconfig doesn't open.
    I went to a forum that gave solutions for downloading msconfig but they don't work.
    I started XP in the save mode and Run but still no msconfig.
    Another forum said to download an alternative msconfig which sits on the control board, but that also didn't work.
    I tried the suggestion to type in Run sfc /scannow and insert the XP disk but also no result. Anyone more suggestions?

    You may be infected. Run these:

    Malwarebytes© Corporation
    http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam/program/mbam-setup.exe

    SuperAntispyware
    http://www.superantispyware.com/superantispywarefreevspro.html

    If you still get error messages, download this Avira Antivir Rescue
    System program which will burn a CD image to a blank CD. It's updated a
    few times per day. Insert the CD into the damaged machine and let it do
    a scan of your system. Before starting the scan, select "Configuration"
    and set to repair or rename the infected files. Sometimes your machine
    won't restart after such a repair process, so you might want to save
    needed files to another system before using this. If you can't, then
    you can move the hard drive to another machine to copy needed files.
    You can do that before, or after this scan.

    And AVG now has a Rescue CD that's free. They also have a free USB
    download that should work on newer systems that can boot from a USB
    device. Get them here:

    http://www.avg.com/us-en/avg-rescue-cd

    You can try some of the CD's mentioned at the following site.
    BitDefender was my favorite, but if the infected machine can't connect
    to the internet to get updates, Avira comes with current virus
    definitions. Also, some of these just won't run on some systems,
    perhaps because there's no drivers available for some system devices,
    motherboard, graphics card, etc. So try a few of these till you find
    one that works:

    Burn BitDefender, or another program listed at the link below, to a CD
    (using a working machine) and test the infected machine with it.
    BitDefender also has a Rootkit checker on the Linux Desktop; run it if
    you think that's the problem:

    http://www.techmixer.com/free-bootable-antivirus-rescue-cds-download-list/

    Download the executable rather than the .iso image, if one is available,
    (though no .exe is available for BitDefender).

    After the scan is run, if you elect to quarantine files, they're
    quarantined to RAM and lost after you reboot. You'll need to copy any
    quarantined files to the hard drive, a thumb drive or elsewhere before
    exiting.
