We will use an mobile operating system called xPUD, and a script called rst.sh to restore your computer.
On the clean computer.
Creating a bootable USB using xPUD
- Please download the following files and save it to the desktop
- Insert the USB device to make bootable to the computer. (Make sure that no other USB's are inserted)
- Double-click on unetbootin.exe to run
- Select Disk Image, ISO and in the space provided, enter the path location of xpud-0.9.2.iso (ex. C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\Desktop\xpud-0.9.2.iso)
- Select USB Drive type and the drive letter assigned to your USB stick.
- Click "OK" and wait until the program finishes. You now have a bootable xPUD.
- Download the following tool and save it inside the bootable USB
Please note: if you prefer to create a bootable CD using xPUD, you may download the ISO image found here and burn it to a CD.
On the infected computer.
- Reboot your system using the xPUD bootable USB you just created.
Note : If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from USB follow the steps here
- Your system should now display a xPUD desktop.
- Select on the File icon; on the right pane click on the "mnt" folder and highlight "sdb1" - this is your USB device.
sda1,2...usually corresponds to your HDD
sdb1 is likely your USB
- Click on the "Tool" menu and select Open Terminal
- In the open terminal window, type in the following:
- Press "Enter" and let it run uninterrupted.
(The program lists available Restore Points and will save a report enum.log located in the USB drive.)
- The program is finished when it say's "Done".
- Type "Exit" to close the terminal window.
- Please attached the enum.log file in your reply. (You may remove your USB drive when transferring log to a clean computer).
Please note: If you have an ethernet connection you can access the internet by way of xPUD (Firefox). You can perform all these steps on your sick computer. When you download the download will reside in the Download folder. It can be found under the File tab also. You can similarly access our thread by way of this OS too so you can send the logs that way.

Should i continue the steps you posted earlier? If there is actually a problem with a hard drive do you have any more advice?

The cost is less than £100 - but first we need to ensure it is the hard drive and not the motherboard, if it is that then it would be cheaper to buy a brand new one
Could you try the USB programme to see if we can access the hard drive
