Hello All:

I have a PC which is exhibiting the following behavior, which I found on techrepublic.com:

Microsoft has confirmed that malware is responsible for XP-based systems suffering BSoDs and rolling reboots after the application of a patch released during February’s Patch Tuesday bundle. The patch in question was MS10-015, an update that Microsoft issued to fix a 17-year old vulnerability in Windows that affected 32-bit operating systems from Windows 7 all the way back to Windows NT 3.1.

My Uncle's PC will just continually boot. I cannot even return to the "last known good configuration" when depressing the F8-function key. It will allow me
to make that selection, however, once I do, the PC just keeps rebooting itself.

Does anyone know how to fix this issue, or will I have to reinstall XP yet again.

Thanks for your assistance in this matter.

IL:

Hello and welcome.gif to BleepingComputer!

This problem can be fixed in different ways.

Do you have an XP installation CD at hand?

regards, Elise

Are you able to download a 270 MB file and burn it to a CD?

regards, Elise

Sure can....!!!!

I am not sure how to do it from this Forum Page. I am guessing that this will be sent to my email, and from there I copy it to disk.

Hey, just a little background on myself... I am an old crusty "UNIX/C/C++" guy.... crazy.gif So I will need a little guidance on how
to make this all work.

Sorry for the inconveinence....

No worries, I am posting the instructions below smile.gif

Let me know if anything is unclear! I am shifting this topic to the Malware Removal forum, since this is an advanced tool.

OK this file is big Print these instruction out so that you know what you are doing

Two programs to download

First

ISOBurner this will allow you to burn OTLPE ISO to a cd and make it bootable. Just install the program, from there on in it is fairly automatic. Instructions

Second
  • Download OTLPE.iso and burn to a CD using ISO Burner. NOTE: This file is 292Mb in size so it may take some time to download.
  • When downloaded double click and this will then open ISOBurner to burn the file to CD
  • Reboot your system using the boot CD you just created.

    Note : If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from CD follow the steps here
  • Your system should now display a REATOGO-X-PE desktop.
  • Double-click on the OTLPE icon.
  • When asked "Do you wish to load the remote registry", select Yes
  • When asked "Do you wish to load remote user profile(s) for scanning", select Yes
  • Ensure the box "Automatically Load All Remaining Users" is checked and press OK
  • OTL should now start. Change the following settings
    • Change Drivers to Use Safelist
  • Press Run Scan to start the scan.
  • When finished, the file will be saved in drive C:\OTL.txt
  • Copy this file to your USB drive if you do not have internet connection on this system
  • Please post the contents of the OTL.txt file in your reply.

regards, Elise

Elise025:

I am in the process of downloading the OTLPE.iso. Okay, now, what the heck is that....??? blink.gif I take it that it is an XP type of executable file?

I downloaded the ISOburner as well. SO, with that being said, I will continue as per your instructions.

Man, I need to get my Uncle a MAC or something.... w00t.gif

OTLPE is OTL in a Preinstalled Environment. This is linux based and allows the OS on the CD to be fully loaded in RAM.

In this case, the ReatogoX environment is used. Its just another form of a linux live CD.

laugh.gif Because the XP installation on that computer is currently not working properly?

Believe me, it works quite smooth this way!
