My brother put trojan.win32.blackbird on my computer. Since we had multiple others we just stopped using it. I recently removed all the malwhare, spyware and trojans we had on there and ubuntu still wont boot from the disk. It gives me all these errors on the screen. Anything I can do t fix this or is the trojan still there? :)

How are you attempting to boot Ubuntu? If you are using grub, you may need to reinstall the boot loader. If you are using another means, that also might be damaged and need to be repaired.

I did not say anything about removing the virus, so that must have been someone else.

Are you trying to boot Ubuntu from a Live CD? and that is not working?

Is there any error message?

Well, it is a bit hard to know what the problem is without the error messages. I am not sure if the Ubuntu Live CD uses the disk for temp. space, it might, so it could indicate a problem with the filesystem.

That is the last thing it does? It looks like it is doing a page fault and having a problem. Typically a page fault uses the disk to write memory pages to. I am not sure what exactly the Live CD uses, but you might want to check the filesystems and the disk on the machine.

Hi there,

Looking at the page fault and panic notices and a most telling "oops" I would say your box don't like Ubuntu. "oops" is the kernel saying it didn't like a driver that was being loaded.

If this is a Windows box and all you want to do is scan it for a virus and malware have a look here.

Several companies put out live cd's that will do the job. They're designed for the most basic boot and scan. I've had occasion to use Kaspersky's with good success.

Thanks,

First you download the *.iso. (114MB)
Second you burn the image to a CD. I assume you have access to another PC that uses Windows. I believe IMGBurn will do the job but since I don't use window for anything other than extra income I have no idea how it would be used for *.iso burning. I think it is loaded in the shell menu (right click on the.iso and I think there is an option to burn or open with IMGBurn after you install it. BICBW?)
Last boot the CD just like you tried with Ubuntu and you should get the option to boot. Hit enter and it will load the scanner. Scan C:\ and let the disk do it's job.

What are you trying to do? Are you wanting to load a new OS? If so why are you even bothering with Windows virus and malware?

Why Ubuntu? It's one the worst Distros out there in my opinion. If your a masochist and want to try getting Ubuntu to run on your machine try other boot options(usually F3 will give them to you). You could try to boot with "no apci" or use a failsafe boot.

Why not try a different Distro? SimplyMepis is a very nice user friendly stable distro.
