It found several and deleted them. It also found a '...WINNT\system32\config\soft... item which it wanted to remove but couldn’t. So I searched for it and tried deleting myself but because of some 'sharing violation/prg in use' notification i failed. Spywareterminator tried removing it itself but again was unsuccessful. The last message i got was "stop the process: SPYWARETERMINATOR" and it instructed me and gave me the option to restart the computer. I restarted it, but now the computer does not work- it stalls right at the beginning of the restart procedure where is says "windows is starting up..." and then loops and switches off and restarts again only getting as far as that screen. Why did this happen and, what happened...and what can I do?
