    As header, a friends computer seems to have a virus. OS is winXP.
    Booting up gets the error message <isass.exe - application error - the
    application failed to inialize properly ( 0xc000000005). Terminating
    freezes the system and around and around.
    I have googled sasser but nothing seems to offer a solution of how to
    get out of the loop. Is a clean reinstall the only option? Are there any
    cleaners that will work from bootup?

    Will it boot in safe mode?

    try SAVCLI32 which is a bootable CD from SOPHOS. I would have thought it
    would cover sasser but I haven't used it since about June.

    you need to download 2 zips which are listed. One for the app and one
    for the ides.
