Hi, all.

A few days ago, I was unfortunate enough to receive the Advanced Virus Remover virus / scare-ware. I finally got rid of it with Malwarebytes, but now I cannot run the CHKDSK utility. FSUtil says that my volume is dirty but does not run auto-check upon reboot. When I try CHKDSK /F from console, it states 'Cannot open volume for direct access.' Trying to use the Recover Console, I get BSOD telling me to run CHKDSK /F and noting: STOP 0x0000007B (0xF78D2524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

Any ideas? This is driving me crazy!

You followed the instructions at http://www.malwarebytes.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=16522 ?

"0x0000007B: INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE
Windows lost access to the system partition or boot volume during the startup process. Typical causes: Installing incorrect device drivers when installing or upgrading storage adapter hardware, or a virus."

Try running the fixmbr command from the Recovery Console.

Yeap, that's the one. The problem now is that I cannot get to Recovery Console to use fixmbr. I get the BSOD every time.
