I realize my problem here doesn't fit perfectly into this forum, but it's the closest I could find. My computer has broken down and won't start back up, and any help or educated opinions would be greatly appreciated. I'll try to make a long story short as possible. Basically, I was downloading TV show torrents on my computer, left them there, then after a while my computer could no longer shut down and would freeze constantly. After backing up all the stuff I needed, I decided to do a system restore with the recovery discs from Best Buy. They got about 65% through on the 2nd disc and it said error and started over. I looked at the disc and it was scratched so I instead did system recovery from the hard disk. After completion, my computer has no longer been able to start up. It takes me to a windows error recovery page and says "Launch Start up Repair (Recommended)" or a blue screen that quickly counts up to 100% and automatically restarts. After it attempts the start up repair, it says "Starup repair cannot repair the computer automatically," and then after choosing whether to send the info to Microsoft or not, automatically restarts. A friend of mine who is decent with computers says it sounds more like a software problem, and if I went out and got Windows 7 or something (I have vista), that should take care of it. Just wanted to get a few other opinions on how I should go about fixing this before going to Best Buy and having them tell me I need the most expensive fix. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, cbailey249! Posted ImageMy nick name is CompCav and I will be assisting you with your Malware/Security problems. Please make sure you read all of the instructions and fixes thoroughly before continuing with them. If you have any questions or you are unsure about anything, just ask and I will help you out. :)

If you have resolved the issues you were originally experiencing, or have received help elsewhere, please let me know so that this topic can be closed.


Please make sure you are saving and printing the instructions out prior to each fix, this way you will have them on hand just in case you are unable to access this site. One of the steps I will be asking you to do requires you to boot into Safe Mode and this process will be much easier for you to perform if the instructions are printed out for you to follow.

If you are ready to get started, please review and follow these guidelines so that we resolve your issues in a timely and effective manner:
  • Logs from malware removal programs (OTL is one of them) can take some time to analyze. I need you to be patient while I analyze any logs you post.
  • Please make sure to carefully read any instructions that I give you. Since I cannot see or directly interact with your computer I am dependent on you to "be my eyes" and provide as much information as you can regarding the current state of your computer.
  • If you're not sure, or if something unexpected happens, do NOT continue! Stop and ask!
  • These instructions have been specifically tailored to your computer and the issues you are experiencing with your computer. These instructions are not suitable for any other computer, even if the issues are fairly similar.
  • Do not do things I do not ask for, such as running a spyware scan on your computer. However, the one thing that you should always do, is to make sure your anti-virus definitions are up-to-date!
  • Please do not use the Attachment feature for any log file. Just do a Copy/Paste of the entire contents of the log file inside your post and submit.
  • You must reply within four days failure to reply will result in the topic being closed!
  • Please do not PM me directly for help. If you have any questions, post them in this topic. PM me only if I have not responded to your last post in 2 days.
  • Lastly, I am no magician. I will try very hard to fix your issues, but no promises can be made. Also be aware that some infections are so severe that you might need to ultimately reformat your hard drive and reinstall the operating system.
    Don't worry, this only happens in severe cases, but it sadly does happen. Please have the software and storage media for backing up your data available.


You did not say if your Vista is 32-bit or 64-bit. Please pick the appropriate one for your computer to download. If you do not know, check the Microsoft sticker on your computer.



If you can get to the Advanced Boot Options using F8 please do, if not then use the recovery disk or Vista DVD.




For x32 (x86) bit systems download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to a flash drive.
For x64 bit systems download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool x64 and save it to a flash drive.

Plug the flashdrive into the infected PC.

Enter System Recovery Options.

To enter System Recovery Options from the Advanced Boot Options:
  • Restart the computer.
  • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until Advanced Boot Options appears.
  • Use the arrow keys to select the Repair your computer menu item.
  • Select English as the keyboard language settings, and then click Next.
  • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
  • Select your user account an click Next.

To enter System Recovery Options by using Windows installation disc:
  • Insert the installation disc.
  • Restart your computer.
  • If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc. If your computer is not configured to start from a CD or DVD, check your BIOS settings.
  • Click Repair your computer.
  • Select English as the keyboard language settings, and then click Next.
  • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
  • Select your user account and click Next.

On the System Recovery Options menu you will get the following options:
Startup Repair
System Restore
Windows Complete PC Restore
Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool
Command Prompt
[*]Select Command Prompt
[*]In the command window type in notepad and press Enter.
[*]The notepad opens. Under File menu select Open.
[*]Select "Computer" and find your flash drive letter and close the notepad.
[*]In the command window type e:\frst.exe (for x64 bit version type e:\frst64) and press Enter
Note: Replace letter e with the drive letter of your flash drive.
[*]The tool will start to run.
[*]When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.

We need to search for two files:

  • Restart your computer like you did before to start FRST and get to this screen:
    Posted Image
  • Type the following into the search box:

explorer.exe*;user32.dll*;volsnap.sys*

  • Press the Search button.
  • Once it completes, a message will pop up indicating that the search is completed.
  • It will make a log (Search.txt) on the flash drive. Please copy and paste it to your reply.

Sometimes the search can be finicky so just type each one in individually

Like

explorer.exe*

Then do the search, retrieve the file and copy paste each one individually.


Regards,

Compcav

Download the enclosed file.

Save it in the USB drive.

Insert the USB drive into the ailing computer. Run FRST as you did before, except that this time around click on the Fix button.

The tool will make a log on the flashdrive (Fixlog.txt) please post it it your reply.

Attempt to boot in Normal Mode. If successful, run Combofix as follows:

Download and Install Combofix

Download ComboFix from one of the following locations:
Link 1
Link 2

VERY IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

* IMPORTANT - Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. If you have difficulty properly disabling your protective programs, refer to this link here
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.

  • When finished, it shall produce a log for you.
  • Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.

Notes:
1. Do not mouse-click Combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.
2. Do not "re-run" Combofix. If you have a problem, reply back for further instructions.
3. If after the reboot you get errors about programmes being marked for deletion then reboot, that will cure it.



Please make sure you include the combo fix log in your next reply as well as describe how your computer is running now

After getting the fixlog.txt, I have tried restarting it but with the same results. I re-ran the startup repair and still can't get it to boot up normally.

I checked with some of my expert friends and it looks like it did not complete the factory reset correctly or completely.

So please hit F11 on boot up and try the factory reset again. If you get any errors during the process please make a note of them and post them in a reply.



Regards,

After running the System Recovery it just did the same thing it has been doing. After that initial windows screen where it has the little loading bar at the bottom, it goes to a blue screen that quickly counts up to 100% at the bottom and says something like "dumping physical memory to disk" or something along those lines. At the top it says something along the lines of a problem has been detected and windows is shutting down to prevent further damage to your computer. The blue screen is only up for 2 or 3 seconds before restarting itself again. And then after restarting it will go to the screen giving me the option to either start windows normally (which takes me to the blue screen) or to run startup repair (which always ends in saying it couldn't fix anything).

Did you do the factory reset where it formats the hard drive?
