About a week ago I noticed that every time I tried to do a Google search I would be redirected to another website. After a little research I realized my computer had been infected with a redirect virus/malware. Looking into it a little further (apparently not far enough however) I read a few related incidents where Hitman Pro would eliminate the issue. Unfortunately for me, and as it appears many more out there it also eliminated the ability for my OS to properly boot. Upon booting up my computer I'm instructed to run Windows Start up Repair. I've ran the Start up Repair application numerous times with the outcome always being the same "Start up Repair cannot repair this computer automatically". This is what I get after the Start up Repair fails to correct the problem under "Problem Details":

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: StartupRepairOffline
Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 03: unknown
Problem Signature 04: 21201032
Problem Signature 05: AutoFailOver
Problem Signature 06: 20
Problem Signature 07: NoRootCause
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033

I've also tried the Advanced System Recovery Options (i.e. system restore etc), whenever I try System Restore it tells me that no Restore Points have been created. I do not have the installation CD since the OS came loaded on the computer when I purchased it. I would really like to stay away from using the Recovery CD if I can since I have numerous important work files I would like to retrieve first before completely wiping out a partition.

My computer is an ASUS UL50AG-A2 using Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit). The two discs that came with my computer are the ASUS Driver & Utility Ver 1.0 and the ASUS Windows 7 Recovery Media for Windows 7 Products. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I've come to the end of the road with no other viable options. FYI, I'm not the most computer savvy person so screen shots are always a plus if you think there might be something that could be confusing.

You will need a USB (Flash) pendrive.

For x32 (x86) bit systems download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save to your USB drive.
For x64 bit systems download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool x64 and save to your USB drive.

Plug the flashdrive into the infected PC.

Booting your PC to Command Promp
  • Restart your PC, press and hold the F8 key as it restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
  • On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press Enter.
  • Select a keyboard layout, and then click Next.
  • On the System Recovery Options menu, click on Command Prompt

Running FRST
  • In the command window type in "notepad" and press theEnter key.The notepad should open.
  • Under File menu select "Open".
  • Select "Computer" and locate your flash drive. Make a note of the drive letter and close the notepad.
  • In the command window type e:\frst.exe (for x64 bit version type e:\frst64.exe) and press Enter
  • Note: Replace letter e with the drive letter of your flash drive (from step 3 above).
  • The tool will start to run.
  • When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.

It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the flash drive. Please copy and paste it to your reply.

First off, thank you for getting back to me so quickly I know you probably have better things to be doing during the holiday season. As requested here are the results from the Farbar Recovery Scan:


I'm in England, so it's not a holiday week here :)

Download MBRFix from here.

Save and extract its contents to the working computer's desktop. There are three files in the MBRFix folder. From these, only copy the MBRFix64.exe to the USB drive.

Also download the attached file and save it in the USB drive.

Insert the USB drive into the ailing computer.

Now please enter System Recovery Options and run FRST64 as you did before, except that this time around, press the Fix button just once and wait.

The tool will make a log on the flashdrive (Fixlog.txt). It will also create a file labeled MBRDUMP.txt. Copy and Paste the contents of the Fixlog.txt in your next reply, but attach the MBRDUMP.txt as it is a hex file.

Check and see if the system now boots please

I didn't find a file labeled MBRDUMP.txt when I ran the program however I did get a MbrFix Firefox document. I tried to attach the file just in case but I get an error message saying "you aren't permitted to upload this kind of file". Please let me know where I should go from here.

Thanks

I restarted my computer as you had previously asked, and I'm still get the same problem with the Start up Repair.

Azarl,

I ran the fixlist.txt program as required and this is all I got in the FixLog:

Fix result of Farbars's Recovery Tool (FRST written by farbar Version 2.3.0)
Ran by SYSTEM at 2011-11-27 19:59:40 R:6

==== End of Fixlog ====

Once again I didn't get a file labeled MBRDUMP, not sure if I'm doing anything wrong so I'll explain exactly what I did. I re-downloaded all the files you had asked me to download, I ran FRST64.exe as requested, after the scan completed I hit fix only once. I again attempted to restart my computer to no avail. I'm still getting the start up repair message.

OK, let's try this.

  • Restart your PC, press and hold the F8 key as it restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
  • On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press Enter.
  • Select a keyboard layout, and then click Next.
  • On the System Recovery Options menu, click on Command Prompt
    Posted Image
  • In the command window type bootrec.exe /fixmbr and press enter
  • Reboot

Ran the command bootrec.exe /fixmbr says "The operation completed successfully." I attempted to reboot my computer but I'm still getting the same start up repair issue as I was before.

Came back saying "Successfully scanned Windows installations. Total identified Windows installations: 0 The operation completed successfully. I'm getting the feeling that the only way I'll get my computer back and functional is if I use the Recovery disc and wipe everything clean. Am I being paranoid and over analyzing this?

No, you're not. There is a possibility that it will come to that, i which case we'll look at getting any data off you need, but we've things to try first

Please download the attached file and save it in the USB drive.


Insert the USB drive into the ailing computer.

Now please enter System Recovery Options and run FRST64 as you did before, except that this time around, press the Fix button just once and wait.

The tool will make a log on the flashdrive (Fixlog.txt). It will also create a file labeled BCD.txt. Copy and Paste the contents of both Fixlog.txt and bcd.txt in your next reply

Good to know that we have more things to try. I ran FRST64.exe and pressed "fix" only once (this time without hitting scan first). It again came up with an empty FixLog:

==== End of Fixlog ====

And once again I didn't get another file (this time there was no BCD.txt file). Not sure if I'm doing anything wrong or if it's my system.

Restarted my system no change to the start up.

Definitely no file BCD.txt on the USB?
