This is a work supplied labtop.
I am in trouble if I have to turn it over to my IT department because I have been going onto facebook (against IT policy)
and I have been playing a game(also against policy)
I got infected with the Vondo Trojan Horse Virus
I researched ComboFix but I jumped on it a bit to eagerly, I should have been more cautious and I should have done it under guidance.
I created a Recovery Consule and Combo Fix deleted the virus and rebooted my computer.
All was well, my system preformance improved slightly, pop up adds disappeared, google redirects stopped
all was well.
I did not post my text file to the forum, nor did I remove ComboFix as I should have.
I was just overloaded from trying to trouble shoot the virus for the last 6 hours and figured I could do those steps later.
Then I shut off my computer for the night
The next day upon boot up:
I get the STOP: 0x0000007B error
even trying to start in safe mode I cant get past the following line:
no matter which mode I choose I can not get past this error
If I enter the Windows Recovery Console I get the following prompt:
Which Windows installation would you like to log onto
(To cancel, press ENTER)?
What should I do?
Keep in mind that I have no XP boot disk
I am just a user on this computer, not an administrator (if XP even makes that distinction)
I must have it running by tomorrow morning or I will be forced to send it to IT department where they will find Combo Fix and Facebook and a Game
I will recieve a slap on the wrist at the least (doubtful)
Lose my computer( most likely outcome)
Get fired (unlikely)
If I can just get this computer to boot normally I will delete my game and adhere to all IT policies, I have learned my lesson, but I need help getting there.
