Hello,

I have been referred here from the Security forums following the removal of a rootkit (thread here).

After using ComboFix, I rebooted the computer and got the following message at startup:

Checking files system on D:
The type of the file system is FAT32.

One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You
may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended
that you continue.
Windows will now check the disk.
Volume Serial Number is 3EC6-2E70
The specified disk appears to be a non-Windows XP disk.
Do you want to continue? (Y/N) No
Error in writing the output log.
...

After being asked to run a registry fix, the startup message is now:

Checking files system on D:
The type of the file system is FAT32.
The volume is dirty. <-- This is new.
Volume Serial Number is 3EC6-2E70
The specified disk appears to be a non-Windows XP disk.
Do you want to continue? (Y/N) No <-- This used to be a 10-second countdown, but now it appears straight as this.
Error in writing the output log.
...

I have other issues in addition to this (startup takes about five minutes, mouse clicks are slow to be detected in the Start menu and taskbar, no programs are shown in the Add or Remove Programs window), but I'll stick to the "one problem, one post" rule.

Any help would be appreciated!
