Hello everybody,

a couple of days ago my system got infected with the 'malware defense' malware, which consequently led to system crashes after variable intervals when windows was started in normal mode.
i screwed around a little with it and managed to remove it, using rkill, malwarebytes anti malware and hitman pro (apparently it wasnt the only infection i had, they found several). after that it ran like a song.
so i was filled with joy when my pc was workin again, but this was not to last long. i started windows yesterday in the morning and when i returned in the afternoon i find it displaying a blue error screen. i turned it off and on and now it stops after loading the bios, saying:

drive 1 not found: serial ata, sata-2
error auto-sensing secondary master hard disk drive
strike f1 to continue, f2 to run setup

striking f1 gives: no boot device available

f2 brings me in setup.

i hope its nothing a little good will cant fix. im not ready to say goodbye to it yet...
