I have a HP Home PC that the family uses for everyday computing.
My brother and I are novice computer gamers, and over the past week or so have spent alot of our time playing online games.
Today I downloaded a game assistant ZIP file off of a forum that contained an .exe Injector file. File name was : hInjector.exe.
I unzipped it, and opened the .exe file , and right away malware/spyware (can't recall which) notifications started popping up in the bottom right hand corner of the screen. Assuming that the viruses were being blocked due to the QUARANTINE/ALLOW option that the notifications were giving me, I waited for something to open, so I could close it, and run a virus removal program. Nothing opened, and my computer immediately shut off, giving me the Blue Screen of Death.
The computer ran through it's reboot/startup routine, but at the end of it, the BSOD just flashed, and it attempted to reboot again. It then gave me the option of "startup repair" (if I remember the name correctly). I ran the repair, and it didn't work. Instead, it just keeps going in a cycle of running the repair, restarting, and running it again, etc.
I attempted pressing F8 and opening in Safe Mode, but that doesn't seem to work either. My brother also tried a system restore which also doesn't seem to work.
What could the problem be? and How do I fix it?
This was a stupid mistake on my part, and I've deleted all my game files realizing that I've gone to far with online gaming over a short period of time. I'm on my way to getting back on track with college, etc. and repairing this issue will contribute greatly to our family. Thank you very much!
