I am still on my laptop. I copied the RC.ISO to a CD and copied that ntfs.sys file from this laptop to the CD as well. It seemed to copy ok using the Wizard on here. Since I never really "Burned" anything before!! But, Now I just went and downloaded the MagicISO and that is on my desktop (where the downloads go). I got the recent version made on 8/2/09 ver 5.5(build 276). Don't know why they have all the other versions listed on that site. I just chose the top one.
I haven't done anything with it yet because I am confused.
To open MagicISO on this laptop I can probably double click on it or go into the Start/Run and find it and open it there. It might be self explanatory but I will be stuck if I have a problem and won't be able to go back online if it goes awry. So to be clear. When I get that MagicISO to open up will it ask for that RC.ISO file??? Because you state to "open RC.ISO in it." Then, put that other ntfs.sys file in the RC.ISO. Now, I get confused again. When I save it, it will be saved to the CD or does it get saved in the RC.ISO? I did go to the Tutorial and seen the page as it would appear. So, that will be on my desktop and I will still be able to go online or it will keep me online? The, I need to go into the CD and move the file that I put there to the RC.ISO? Or, I didn't need to transfer it to the CD from this laptop, I could have transferred it from the laptop to that RC.ISO?
I went to imgburn and when I clicked on Download at the top left it brought me to a page where I guess I have to chose which one to download.http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download
Do I click on Mirror 8 provided by Imgburn? Or, where it says "Burn" in the same row as "Ads by Google"?
I went to that other link in the forum. I guess when I get this far it will be ok. Or, I will be ok I mean to say!!
Then, once this CD is done. I will put it in my pc and when I start it up, It will read the CD and I guess a prompt appears and I hit "R" if there are several choices? Or, is this like the boot in safe mode where you just have to keep hitting the F8 to get it to stop booting up normally only I will be keep hitting the "R"? Then, I just type in all the stuff they say on that MS page.
I would really like to know what happened to this file. Is it something that I did when I cleaned it? I did wake up in the middle of the night sort of like having a pc nightmare LOL and I remembered I used some Rootblahblah that I found on here for cleaning out a dirty pc. It made 2 logs. I think it was about finding files that should have been deleted when I deleted stuff and these files weren't and this program would find them. I can't really rememebr and don't feel like trying to find all those links now. I want to get this posted so I can get my pc up and running again.
Edited: I finally found the link that I used yesterday trying to clean up the pc. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/
I ran the DDS and RootRepeal in case when I cleaned the dust and the pc was still slow I had these logs.
The other question I have is when I use this CD I am making. It is just to get this missing file back in there. Then, when I reboot, all my stuff will be there and I will be happy right!!
Thanks for your help! I like your avatar!
