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