Sasser Disaster

The stupidest thing I ever did. I was trying to remove
the sasser virus manually because stinger could not find
it but my machine kept rebooting. In my zeal, I started
renaming all of hte lsass.exe files. I got to the last
one and when I rebooted windows did not come up. Now I
cannot boot in safe mode, safe mode with command prompt,
regular bootup or anything. I get to the windows is
starting up progress bar, it goes to the end and nothing
else happens. someone please help. thanks for any
suggestions.

Great idea but I can't even get to a dos prompt. I have
NTFSpro available but did not have it today when I was at
the computer. Got any ideas on how to get to a dos prompt
in W2K?

To start the Recovery Console, start the computer from the Windows 2000
Setup CD or the Windows 2000 Setup floppy disks. If you do not have Setup
floppy disks and your computer cannot start from the Windows 2000 Setup CD,
use another Windows 2000-based computer to create the Setup floppy disks.
Press ENTER at the "Setup Notification" screen. Press R to repair a Windows
2000 installation, and then press C to use the Recovery Console. The
Recovery Console then prompts you for the administrator password. If you do
not have the correct password, Recovery Console does not allow access to the
computer. If an incorrect password is entered three times, the Recovery
Console quits and restarts the computer. Once the password has been
validated, you have full access to the Recovery Console, but limited access
to the hard disk. You can only access the following folders on your
computer: %systemroot% and %windir%

The one that matters is in
C\winnt\system32
