I recently had an MBR and rootkit infection which was successfully removed on 9/6 with the help of the malware forum. All has been fine until 9/20 when the BSOD at restart to finish installing the updates occurred. Right now I cannot run chkdsk and I cannot backup my data, but windows is executing OK - most of the time. I did receive 1 other BSOD today with BAD_POOL_CALLER msg while on the internet.
I am running Vista Home Premium with service pack 1 - because service pack 2 would not install. I was able to install all updates individually. I am also having issues booting into safe mode - can only boot to safe mode with networking - the other options for safe mode result in windows shutting down. I see no evidence of malware - have run mbrcheck and malwarebytes and they are clean. No redirections on web sites or task bar changing colors either. I also backed out the updates (which were listed as successfully installed) that were involved with the BSOD, but it made no difference.
Anyone know how to resolve the chkdsk and backup issues? I sure could use some help!
