Question about IBM ThinkPad T43 Notebook
At this point i would call your Current Operating system dead. If you can boot into XP and move and documents or pictures you want to keep onto a USB drive. Once this is done, I can not guarintee the files will not be infected but, if you MUST keep some of your files, it is worth a try.
From power off, Boot your T43, pressing the Blue IBM ACCESS button when the screen first turns on. just keep pressing it until the screen turns to Loading IBM Access and recovery. This is a hidden partition on your hard drive, (safe from that pesky worm and trojans) which contains the backup files needed to completely restore your comp to factory default.
In here you will want to select continue to get the initial screen to go away, navigate over to the left hand bar, and one of the options will allow you to completely restore to factory settings, select it, and run through the pop-ups. once you have done this it will take about 40 minutes to run, and boot up with a CLEAN and fresh version of XP, run Windows update and start installing your programs you lost. Best of Luck.
