descriptionNeed XP help, won't reboot in normal or safe mode.

more_horiz
Okay I am using my mom's computer because I cannot boot mine.. The other night Avira alerted me to a virus, I ran a scan, deleted the virus and restarted the computer. Upon restart I received the BSOD. I tried safe mode and it runs a bunch of commands and then stops. Nothing more. I tried going into recovery console but don't know what command to type in. It says drive C and press enter to exit recovery console. Can this machine be saved???? Please help?

One other thing to ad. Ive been on the phone with microsoft pretty much all day and boy do they suck. From what little service I did recieve from them I mentioned to the rep that in the bsod I get a stop error message. I wrote it down and read it to him and he said it has to do with damaged ram. Could it be that this virus corrupted my memory?
