So I was trying to remove a tool kit from my PC.. I used malwarebytes,spybot,hitman pro, and various AV with no success.. So someone suggested using combofix.. I ran the program, and it asked me if I wanted to install windows recovery console. I did the PC rebooted ok, then combofix proceeded to scan. It found the toolkits and then asked me to restart..

Now every time I restart it reboots constantly after Windows XP loading.. I tried running recovery console but I gets these errors.

STOP: 0x000000ED (0x823707B8, 0x0000006,0x00000000, 0x00000000)

Also the fans on the PC aren't making any sound, I just get beeps whenever I press something on the keyboard.. Anyone got any idea about what's going on?

Your hard drive might have failed and/or is in the process of failing. I would stop using it, and replace it with a new one.

The Stop 0xED error message pertains to the following: When you restart your computer or upgrade to Windows XP, you receive the "STOP 0x000000ED UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" error message

Hello mos3591,

Most likely the rootkit was not completely removed. With a bit of luck we should be able to fix that. I will move this topic to a more appropriate forum.

Please download OTLPE (filesize 120,9 MB)
  • When downloaded double click on OTLPENet.exe and make sure there is a blank CD in your CD drive. This will automatically create a bootable 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.
  • Depending on your type of internet connection, you should be able to get online as well so you can access this topic more easily.
  • Double-click on the OTLPE icon.
  • Ensure the box "Automatically Load All Remaining Users" is checked and press OK
  • OTL should now start.
  • 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
