Hello,

I recently got one of those pesky Internet Security viruses. I successfully got rid of it with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (great program). Trouble is, now whenever I restart my computer, before Windows launches, it sort of hiccups and restarts again, and the only option that'll actually start is Safe Mode (last known settings that worked (paraphrasing) just causes it to hiccup and restart again).

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Did you adjust any settings via the msconfig tool?

Could be a driver issue, try the following in safe mode.

Download/install BlueScreenView, http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html.

Double-click BlueScreenView.exe file.

When scanning is done, Edit/Select All.

Then File/Save Selected Items.

Save the report as BSOD.txt.

Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content and paste it into your next reply.

I'd say, your computer is still infected.

Yes, my computer was still infected.

Managed to cure it with the Malwarebytes. Doing an actual full scan found a couple of more piece of malware and now I am back up and running.

I think it's fixed now, but thanks for reading.
