Change msconfig setting from recovery console

Discussion in 'Windows Server' started by Paulo Mesquita, Mar 12, 2008.

  1. Hello,

    I've a server with a malware (syschost exe) and in the process of cleannig i
    used msconfig to check the safeboot option.

    After some restarts i now cannot login to teh system (i login and i'm
    immediatley logged out), this is one of the reported consequences of the
    malware.

    I've a workaround to resolve thsi but i need that the server booting
    normaly, but because of the msconfig option the server always boots in safe
    mode.

    My question is: Using the recovery console is possible to something to
    boot.ini so i can boot normally?

    Thanks for your help.
