Sorry, I just realized I should have posted here first, my bad..

I was trying to get rid of "google redirects". tried using many things then was directed to "hitman Pro 3.5". ran that and it found a rootkit form of tdss. Told it to repair, it crashed (hungup froze). On reboot get BSOD 0x000000007B (0xFFFFF880009A98E8, .........)
Tried bootrec /fixMBR, /FixBoot, no luck
When I run /ScanOs it returns "Total identified Windows installations: 0 !!! what's up with that ?
When I use the windows DVD disk to get to recovery Prompt it sees the windows install on the c:\ drive.
Tried restoring a recovery point but it doesn't see any to use. I know for a fact there was one on there from 7/27. I do have a c:\ drive disk image but it's a year old. If I end up having to start from scratch I'll go there, at least I'll get the OS and most of my main software (Adobe CS5, Office, 3dMax). But I would really like to try to recover what I've put on since then. All my personal data files are stored on the D: dirve. Other program install files have been copied off C:\ to a safe location on another drive.

So first I have to find a way to get windows to boot again. Please help

thanks

I need to add that I did also try restoring my last good registry save but no change. will still not boot.
If I try to boot in safe mode I can see that it hangs on classpnp.sys just before it gor BSOD. I tried renaming classpnp.sys to .bak but then it just hung on disk.sys and BSODed, so I switched it all back.

Also I've tried to run OTL but it won't work from the recovery console, I keep getting the error message "the subsystem needed to support the image type is not present"

I need a fix that will work from the recovery prompt window. that's all I can get up.

thanks

I found an instance where someone said that installing another instance of windows on my "D:" drive creating a dual boot situation would force a clearing up of the Bootmgr file and posiably give me access to my original install of windows. once that was done I could delete the second OS install. Is there any truth to this approach ? I'm desparate to do something soon. I can't afford too much more down time.

thanks
