Yes, Windows will boot normally. Can't generate a Parted.log (we never solved that) but i am uploading a screen shot. And the testdisk.log is pasted below. Also attaching a picture of the screen after i hit the P key in testdisk. What's next? :)

You should have told me last night your computer was able to boot back in Normal Mode.

Was there an option in Testdisk to press P (List files in the FAT32) partition?

1 P FAT32 0 1 1 1305 254 63 20980827
1 P FAT32 0 1 1 1305 254 63 20980827

3 P HPFS - NTFS 49947 0 1 182401 10 10 2127874150 [DATA]


Lets scan the computer.

Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

**Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**
  • Please, never rename Combofix unless instructed.
  • Close any open browsers.
  • Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
    • Click on this link or this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.

      If AVG or CA Internet Security Suite is installed, you must remove these programs before using Combofix. If any of these applications will not uninstall, it is first recommended to uninstall it with AppRemover by Opswat. http://www.appremove...ed-applications. Do not use AppRemover on Norton

      -----------------------------------------------------------

    • Close any open browsers.
    • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
    • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
    • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

  • Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • Install the Recovery Console if prompted.
  • When finished, it will produce a report for you.
  • Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" .
**Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

Note: ComboFix may reset a number of Internet Explorer's settings, including making it the default browser.
Note: Combofix prevents autorun of ALL CDs, floppies and USB devices to assist with malware removal & increase security.

Please do not install any new programs or update anything (always allow your antivirus/antispyware to update) unless told to do so while we are fixing your problem. If combofix alerts to a new version and offers to update, please let it. It is essential we always use the latest version.

I didn't know I could boot normally into windows. I never tried until you asked me to today. ;)

No, i don't think there was an option in Testdisk to press P (List files in the FAT32) partition? I can send you the screen i get right before I do the testdisk P command. Maybe that will help.

And meanwhile, i will work on the combo disk stuff.

Should I do the testdisk stuff again? I am not sure that it is created new partitions like you have depicted in your Quote. I only had 2 and 3, not 1 and 1. So I am not sure that i am ready for the combofix step.

If there was no option to obtain the list of files of the FAT32 partition, no. Continue with Combofix.

[*]Select [Analyse] and press Enter, then press Enter again to run a [Quick Search], select yes


Attached art pictures of what happens at this step. The FAT partitions show up after Clicking Analyse. Then I click Quick Search. Am asked a question and click Y (since you said select Yes in your instructions above). Then it scans and returns the last screen attached which does NOT have the FAT partitions. So I cannot select the FAT partition and click P. Should I select NO after Quick Search instead of Yes?

Actually, answering NO after the QuickSearch produced the same results; no FAT partitions in the list. So I am moving on to the ComboFix instructions.

Does ComboFix require an internet connection? I have my LAN cable unplugged right now and ComboFix on the desktop ready to run. I having connected that machine to the LAN since the problem occurred; thought it would be safer.

Very official looking pop ups. I don't recall ever installing Windows AntiSpyware 2012. I assume this is fake. But I thought I should not use ComboFix if the computer is still under attack. Please advise. :(
