Hello,this is my first post.ok. my sis bought a computer from my brother. he believes he gave her the win7 homepremium install cd but she does not. so i have his oem win7 at the moment but it does not seem to help.
the computer had google-redirect, would open IE on its own , sometimes an audio ad would play while no browsers were open. then sometimes it would download fakeSysDefender, wich i would remove with a sys restore. I got sick of this & looked up how to remove google redirect. i ran tddskiller then malware bytes(free vers.) MBAM removed threats & said to reboot. upon rebooting well it does not.
it gives options to start win normally (wich fails & loops back to this point)- or to start win recovery(recommended). At system recovery it says to select operating system-- none are listed.It does say if no op sys is listed, click load drivers. If I do that I see some folders unsure if i can do something with this. can also click library(empty) & computer wich shows a c:, d: & x: drives ( & E: dvd drive)
Or instead of load drivers, I can click next without selecting an opSys. Here startup repair cannot fix, sys restore cannot find file specified, same with sys image, memcheck runs & says its ok. I can access recovery command prompt.
My sis is very pissed at me for attempting to fix her comp any & all help would be appreciated.I have a 1997 desktop with 128 Mb RAM, no cd burner & doesnt support new usb- that i am using to post this & check replies. TY.
