So I'm the local computer geek, and I'm trying to fix a guy's computer. He had some pretty awful viruses on it, so I ran Malwarebyte's first. The two main viruses I noticed were a google redirect virus, and a "hidden file" virus. I ran TDSS Killer and it didn't find anything. I then ran ComboFix, and it looked like it had worked (the icons were no longer hidden), but then it said to reboot the computer. When I did I got a 0x7b stop message and have gotten the same thing every time I've rebooted since. I tried booting into the recovery console and running bootrec /fixmbr and /fixboot but neither of those worked.
Thanks in advance!!
P.S. Also since I am the guy that usually fixes other people's computers I'd really like to learn how to do this more. Like how to read the logs y'all will ask me to post and all that. Where should I go to start learning the stuff that you guys already know?
EDIT: Right after I posted this I realized I might have posted in the wrong thread. Should this be moved to the "Viruses, Malware, etc." thread? If so I'm sure someone will...sorry!
