Naat,

No this is not a corporate machine. Yes I will be able to reinstall it. I work for a university and have permission to use this software.

 

 

Thanks

David

OK, let's try this one.
Boot your machine from your pendrive exactly like prior and access the command prompt. This time though instead of FRST please type in this command there:

sfc /scannow /offbootdir=Y:\ /offwindir=C:\windows

and press Enter.
 
Note there are "spaces", as shown below in red:
sfc_/scannow_/offbootdir=Y:\_/offwindir=C:\windows

Try to boot your machine using it.
 
Find & access this folder:
Program Files (x86)\ESET\ESET Online Scanner
 
Find there:

  • log.txt file
  • Quarantine folder

Copy them to your operational machine. Zip the Quarantine folder.
Next please upload these two files to this channel for the analysis:

Report when done.

Hello my name is Ron and I will try to add to the help for you. Please do the following and let us know what the results are.

Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.tacktech....ay.cfm?ttid=287
Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.
Depending on the program, it'll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD (chose "Write image file to disc" option), and make the CD bootable.

NOTE. If your hard drive is made by Toshiba, try the Hitachi DFT CD Image version of the software

Thanks to Broni for the instructions
