My windows 7 ASUS laptop has been getting stuck at startup repair. Startup repair is unable to resolve the issue. This started happening after I removed some malware/spyware with PC Tools Spyware Doctor. I'd appreciate any suggestions as I have no idea where to go from here. It doesn't look like I have any system restore points to fall back on.

thank you!

  • Connect your USB stick to a clean computer.
  • From the clean computer, copy the following and paste it into a Notepad file.

    /md5start
    UXTHEME.DLL
    eventlog.dll
    scecli.dll
    netlogon.dll
    cngaudit.dll
    sceclt.dll
    ntelogon.dll
    logevent.dll
    iaStor.sys
    nvstor.sys
    atapi.sys
    IdeChnDr.sys
    viasraid.sys
    AGP440.sys
    vaxscsi.sys
    nvatabus.sys
    viamraid.sys
    nvata.sys
    nvgts.sys
    iastorv.sys
    ViPrt.sys
    eNetHook.dll
    ahcix86.sys
    KR10N.sys
    nvstor32.sys
    ahcix86s.sys
    nvrd32.sys
    userinit.exe
    explorer.exe

  • Save the Notepad file to your USB stick. Save it as scan.txt
  • Download OTLPEStd.exe to your desktop.
  • Once downloaded, insert a blank CD in your burner and click on OTLPEStd.exe. The executable includes the OTLPE_New_Std.iso and a copy of imgburn, a program to burn .iso files. When executed, the application will extract both and start the burning process automatically.
  • Once the CD is burned, boot the Non working computer using the boot CD you just created. For more information, click here
    • Don't forget to connect the USB stick to the computer before you boot from the CD.
  • Your system should now display a REATOGO-X-PE desktop.
  • Double-click on the OTLPE icon.
  • When asked "Do you wish to load the remote registry", select Yes
  • When asked "Do you wish to load remote user profile(s) for scanning", select Yes
  • Ensure the box "Automatically Load All Remaining Users" is checked and press OK
  • OTL should now start. Change the following settings
    • Change Drivers to All
    • Change Standard Registry to All
    • Under the Custom Scan box paste the contents of the Notepad file that you previously saved to your USB stick (scan.txt)
  • Press Run Scan to start the scan.
  • When finished, the file will be saved in drive C:\OTL.txt
  • Copy this file to your USB drive.
  • Please post the contents of the C:\OTL.txt file in your reply.
