Evening,

The redirect/jump bug is alive and well in this laptop. Any assistance to remove this critter and prevent the return would be greatly appreciated.

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.
If you are unable to create a log because your computer cannot start up successfully please provide detailed information about the Windows version you are using: What we in particular need to know is version, edition and if it is a 32bit or a 64bit system.
If you are unsure about any of these caracteristics, just let us know and we'll help you figuring it out. Please also tell us if you have your Windows CD/DVD handy.


Please include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Please refrain from running tools or applying updates other than those we suggest while we are cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so we know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.

Even if you have already provided information about your PC, we need a new log to see what has changed since you originally posted your problem.
We need to create an OTL Report
  • Please download OTL from one of the following mirrors:
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
  • In the custom scan box paste the following:
    msconfig
    safebootminimal
    activex
    drivers32
    netsvcs
    %SYSTEMDRIVE%\*.exe
    /md5start
    explorer.exe
    winlogon.exe
    wininit.exe
    hlp.dat
    /md5stop
  • Push the Posted Image button.
  • Two reports will open, copy and paste them in a reply here:
    • OTL.txt <-- Will be opened
    • Extra.txt<--Will be minimized

In the upper right hand corner of the topic you will see a button called Watch Topic.I suggest you click it and select Immediate E-Mail notification and click on Proceed. This way you will be advised when we respond to your topic and facilitate the cleaning of your machine.

After 5 days if a topic is not replied to we assume it has been abandoned and it is closed.

regards myrti

Morning Myrti,

Thanks for your assistance!!

Things have deteriorated quite a bit since I first posted. In the interval, a fake virus protection program installed and I attempted to eradicate it by running Malwarebytes. Something blocked it and so I ran RKill. Since then, I have been unable to boot the machine in either normal or safe mode. I downloaded and burned a CD so now I can get to the Recovery console. So, where do I go from here? This an 32 bit XP Home edition and I am not sure which SP version.

Hi,

do you use a special boot loader? (Eg do you have a multi boot environment or an encrypted hard drive?)

If not I would suggest that we try to run a fixmbr from your recovery console as a first try.

Could you please also let me know how exactly it no longer boots? Do you see a BSOD? If so when?

Morning Again Myrti,

No to both. Ran fixmbr. Attempted restart, it cycled, BSOD appears, then restarts goes to boot selection menu.

Thanks

Hi,

do you have a Windows CD at hand?

What does the BSOD say? When does it appear: beofre or after the Windows logo? Before or after the logon screen appears?

Afternoon Myrti,

The laptop was donated to our running club, so I do not have XP CDs. The BSOD appears after the Windows logo and subsequent boot mode selection screen, flashes very quickly, and then the laptop reboots. Is there any way to capture the BSOD contents?

Thanks

Hi,

yes, press F8 twice, you should see an option to "disable automatic restart on BSOD", if you hit that the BSOD screen should stay put next time and you'll e able to write down what it says.

Afternoon Myrti,

Hmm, for fun and amusement, I select "Disable automatic restart on system failure" and the system restarts anyway. The BSOD flashes, but my personal shutter speed is a bit slower!

Thanks

Hi,

ok, next I would like to check the content of boot.ini:

Boot from your recovery console CD and type in C:
It should change to the directory C:\. Once your in the directory, type type boot.ini. This should output the content of boot.ini.

Can you type the content down (or take a (readable) picture of it and upload it) in your next reply.

Hi,

I would like you to try the following command in recovery console: fixboot

If that doesn't work, I'd like you to create a different live-cd:

Download GETxPUD.exe to the desktop of your clean computer
  • Run GETxPUD.exe
  • A new folder will appear on the desktop.
  • Open the GETxPUD folder and click on the get&burn.bat
  • The program will download xpud_0.9.2.iso, and upon finished will open BurnCDCC ready to burn the image.
  • Click on Start and follow the prompts to burn the image to a CD.

We will also need a flash drive, onto which I'd like you to download the following two scripts: driver.sh and dumpit

Let me know if that works for you.

Afternoon Myrti,

The fixboot was not productive. Got all 3 suggested downloads, first on CD, next 2 on flash. xPUD up and running. What's next?

Thanks

Hi,
Ok, so fixboot didn't help.

Please do this:
  • Boot the Sick computer
  • Follow the prompts
  • A Welcome to xPUD screen will appear
  • Press File
  • Expand mnt
  • sda1,2...usually corresponds to your HDD
  • sdb1 is likely your USB
  • Click on the folder that represents your USB drive (sdb1 ?)
  • Confirm that you see driver.sh that you downloaded there
  • Press Tool at the top
  • Choose Open Terminal
  • Type bash driver.sh
  • Press Enter
  • After it has finished a report will be located on your USB drive named report.txt
  • Please navigate to your flash drive again and confirm that report.txt is there.
  • You should also see dumpit in that same folder.
  • Double-click dumpit to launch it.
  • Once it is done you should see a new file called mbr.zip on your flash drive.
  • Shutdown your PC and transfer the files to your clean PC and attach them to your next post.

regards myrti
