Hi SleepyDude,
I checked the file ntbtlog, there are no recent information in it.
did some more actions :
1) I renamed the file
2) I added in boot.ini a command to force the creation of ntbtlog.txt (sos...)
Result unchanged : no ntbtlog file created.
Reason is probably explained here : http://support.micro...kb/275735/en-us
or also here : http://superuser.com...tbtlog-txt-file
So it seems that it is written on the registry but that something prevents to write the file itself afterwards...

I also join some other logs that might be interesting :
- WindowsUpdate.log => at the end, we find this :
2013-10-13 22:58:34:765 1048 ac4 AU FATAL: CAUClient::Launch failed, error = 0x800704DD
2013-10-13 23:00:27:437 1048 ac4 AU ########### AU: Uninitializing Automatic Updates ###########
- Wiadebug.log

Hi,

Good Job. :thumbsup:

Can you select Safe Mode with Command Prompt on the F8 menu and take note of the last driver listed or the machine restart to fast?

indeed it is going very very fast.
there are sa many commands that appear at the bottom of the screen in maybe 1 or 2 seconds.
But however, I have filmed it and decomposed image by image :)
So the last command I can read is : ...partition<1>\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\avgidshx.sys
Is it what you were looking for ?

That is wonderful :)

I have a suggestion for you access \Windows\system32\drivers\ and rename every avg file you have there, for instance avgidshx.sys to avgidshx.sys.bak

Let me know if it can boot in Safe mode or the last driver you see now after this change.

Ok. We just checked taht the problem wasn't related to AVG. You can restore the files by removing the .bak extension
With the disk connected to the other machine did you run chkdsk on the drive?

I suppose you didn't run chkdsk /R X:, please do it, this will take some time to check all the disk...

Note: Replace X: with the correct drive.

Hi guys can I join in for a bit?
Let me ask is it possible for you to get a OEM XP installation with SP3 on it? If so we can do a repair installation which should fix the registry for you. The other option is to try and restore back to a previous date using ARCD from Artellos. Not sure if it will work for Win7 though.
