Re: W32/Xpaj.c

Hi snefi,

Sorry to here that Xpaj has hit you this bad.

Can I suggest you read my reply to your initial post here:

My guess is that you will need to boot from an emergency boot disk, on CD or flash drive, and remove all useful data prior to a complete replacement of the OS, and possibly the entire drive, as your boot system is most likely corrupted beyond any software based solution can deal with. A restore of the drivers and MBR are likely needed.

I know this is not the answer you are looking for, but Xpaj is a nasty piece of malware. 0x6b stop message indicates damage at the core of the OS and is not likely to be easily recovered from without extreme effort (and with concerns of a complete recovery leaving nothing behind, still infected). A complete restoration of the system is the only possible answer with additional concerns whether the backup MBR at the end of the disk is still infected.

Get your data off and consider getting a new drive to reload the entire system.

CleanBoot v2.0 may be of interest here:

Good luck,

Ron Metzger
