Hello!

My sisters computer got infected with the Win32 uruy.E trojan. Avast detected it on a boot scan and moved it to chest... 36 files in all including several system files. after that it booted up to a blue screen stop 7B. I ran the XP setup disk that came with the computer to repair the files that were damaged/lost. Now it boots up almost all the way to the desktop but freezes with nothing but a blank-black screen. I would like to fix without formatting if possible. Thanks.

Hello and welcome.. try using SFC

Please run System File Checker sfc /scannow... For more information on this tool see How To Use Sfc.exe To Repair System Files

NOTE for Vista users..The command needs to be run from an elevated Command Prompt.
Click Start, type cmd into the Start/Search box,
right-click cmd.exe in the list above and select 'Run as Administrator'


You will need your operating system CD handy.

Open Windows Task Manager....by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ESC

Then click File.. then New Task(Run)

In the box that opens type sfc /scannow ......There is a space between c and /

Click OK
Let it run and insert the XP CD when asked.

Unfortunately I have no access to windows. It attempts to boot up into windows and then stalls and the harddrive actually stops responding and the screen becomes blank... in safe mode it also stalls except you see the screen with the list of drivers loading. If I could at least get the pictures off the HDD then I could do a clean installation. Not sure where this leaves me, and sorry if I wasn't concise in my explanation of what was happening.

OK, try this . Instructions include running it off a disk etc... You may be able to boot after that.
