I've recently been having problems with a virus on my PC which I have been seeking help for on here.(http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic251140.html
Unfortunately, when I was accessing the internet to see if there had been a response to my topic, the PC rebooted itself for no apparent reason before my internet connection had even loaded up.
I got onto the internet via work and posted a reply to my original topic stating what had happened and Extremeboy suggested that I post a new topic in here and then return to my old topic once I've got my PC up and running again.
No matter what I try I keep getting a blue screen stating "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. Unmountable_boot_volume.
Check any new hardware/software is properly installed and disable any new hardware/software/ Disable BIOS memory options such as saching or shadowing.
Press f8 to restart in safe mode (etc, etc)
*** stop:0XC000000ED (0X8AD3C900, oXC000000E, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)"
I've tried to restore last known good configuration, start windows normally, start in safe mode and each time the system just restarts itself. When it's restarted itself it doesn't find the drives and I get NVIDIA boot agent up (212.0491) saying PXEE61 Media test failure, check cable.
If I turn the PC off and on again it finds the drives ok but restarts itself halfway through startup and I get the blue screen again.
I do have windows recovery console installed on my PC but I've not tried anything with that yet. I thought it would be sensible for me to ask advice of you guys first as you clearly know more about computers than I do!
The only thing I have done to the PC in the last few weeks is to rip a music CD into media player (an original, not a copy), which I then listened to - this was about an hour before I lost my PC. I haven't dowloaded any programmes or done anything else at all.
If I have to recover Windows and lose data then so be it - my photos are backed up and they are the only thing that I really care about, but it would be nice to just be able to restore my system as it is, if that's at all possible, (so I don't have the hassle of re-installing everything) and then get rid of the virus that started it all off in the first place!
Any advice greatfully received
