Ok so I used Vista's Shrink Volume tool and upon rebooting, my computer hangs at the startup screen and does not budge. Even if you try to go into setup or selecting boot device. It absolutely does not want to go anywhere. I've been looking up for solutions and I think it may be that i formatted the unallocated space to ntfs file system and primary partition boot or something like that? :S

Vista Home 6, 32-bit edition

I'm not sure if there's anyway I can go back. Basically I just need a way to wipe the hd so the computer can read my recovery disc.

Thanks for any feedback

Hi Jake,

I see you have a HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum.

You shouldn't make any changes to your system, while your HJT log is posted, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.
At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Since you have received no response after 5 days, give them a gentle reminder by posting a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

This topic will now be closed.
If you have any questions, feel free to send me a PM.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
