Recently, my computer got infected with a virus, so I booted in safe mode, ran Malywarebytes to get ride of it. I repeatably went into safe mode, scan, log into windows to see of the virus was still there

When it seemed that I finally got ride of the virus in safe mode, I rebooted and received this error message

***STOP 0x0000007B (0XB84C7524, 0x000000E, 0X00000000)

I know 0x0000007B means a boot issue, but I have no idea what those numbers afterwards are.

If someone could point me in the right direction of what this error message means, since I don't want to guess and check, I would be grateful.

That should help you out a little. Honestly if you just removed a virus I'd say a system critical file may have been altered or deleted. Try using your OS CD to run a repair install, GL.

Hi Shampun,

Try this please. You will need a USB drive.

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.
  • Remove the USB & CD and insert it in the sick computer
  • Boot the Sick computer with the CD you just burned
  • The computer must be set to boot from the CD
  • Gently tap F12 and choose to boot from the CD
  • 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 ?)
  • Press Tool at the top
  • Choose Open Terminal
  • Type the following and press enter:

    dd if=/dev/sda of=mbr.bin bs=512 count=1

  • Press Enter
  • After it has finished a file will be located on your USB drive named mbr.bin
  • Remove the USB drive and insert it back in your working computer and navigate to mbr.bin, zip it up and attach it to your next reply.

This will allow me to have a look at the MasterBootRecord of your drive and see if it is infected.

regards, Elise

I've done as you said to burn Xpud onto a disc. When I load it up it gives me an option to choose a language then I get this error

Did you boot with the USB drive plugged in? If so, remove it and plug it in after xPUD has loaded (if it loads).

regards, Elise
