Hi,i need some help.
A few days ago i got a virus,and for like 4 days i've been scaning and removing viruses,but it seems they're one step ahead of me. I think the center of all this problem is a virus named "agent akuv". I was a step away from getting rid of them but like a stupid i connected to the internet, and bam, computer crash(blue screen) and the next thing i know is that the file system from the config folder in system32 etc, was corrupted or missing.
So i installed another windows on a different partition, somehow got the system file from a friend, replaced it in the config folder, then i did a repair too...and now i have this stupid error with lsass.exe as in like "When trying to update a password the return status indicates that the value provided as the current password is not correct." and then the computer restarts. Oh and the other windows didn't install correctly also, dunno why.
I was thinking to use the Recovery Console but i can't get past the password confirmation. I don't have any password on the administrator account, but if i leave it blank it says password invalid.What should i do?
Thank you.
