Hey folks, this forum has been a great help for me in the past usually by browsing self-helps, but this time I need some help. My computer was doing fine and I was browsing happily and updating my ipod to the new OS when I noticed the update was frozen on one particular spot. I assumed it was simply taking a while and I went to bed. When I woke up a few hours later it was still frozen so I tried to reboot my computer. This gave me nothing, as the computer would cyclically reboot itself just before the usual Windows screen pops up. Even attempts to boot in safe mode usually ended in this cycle of reboots. It's been two days now, and I finally managed to get it booted up and connected to the internet, though i'm kind of limping. Most of the 4-5 times I managed to boot up all desktop icons were gone, and was told there was nothing on my C drive. Another round of reboots gave me limited access through my quicklaunch bar to malwarebytes and iexplore. I've had 'similar' problems before with high-profile "Anti-Virus" malware, though in this circumstance there's nothing precisely 'visible' that's put a boot on my system. I managed to run RKill, though am unable to run Combofix as I can't get to the file and attempts to redownload it have failed. I'll post my HijackThis log below, and i'm sorry for making you read all this. I hope this is helpful, and thank you for your time.

edit-
I've also been getting a repeat error window that pops up, saying,
"Failed to save all components for multiple files, such as \System32\000003d6c," and "\System32\000004362," and so on in similar fashion.

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. [/b]
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

is that a bird?  a plane? nooo it's the flying blueberry!
