Hello,


I recently installed Avast and performed a boot up scan. I canceled the scan and tried rebooting my computer but it always restarts at the windows logo. I cant get into safe mode either. I've researched this error and saw that I had to do an FRST scan. I've attached it below. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi

Please do the following:


Download the enclosed file:

Save it next to FRST64 on the USB drive.

Run FRST64 as you did before, except that this time click on the Fix button and wait.

The tool will make a log on the flashdrive (Fixlog.txt) please post it to your reply.

Attempt to boot in Normal Mode.


If you are able to do so, please run the following:



Refer to the ComboFix User's Guide

  • Download ComboFix from one of these locations:

    Link 1
    Link 2

    * IMPORTANT !!! Place ComboFix.exe on your Desktop
  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with ComboFix.
    You can get help on disabling your protection programs here
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • Your desktop may go blank. This is normal. It will return when ComboFix is done. ComboFix may reboot your machine. This is normal.
  • When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply

    Note:
    Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • Ensure your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications are re-enabled.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE: If you encounter a message "illegal operation attempted on registry key that has been marked for deletion" and no programs will run - please just reboot and that will resolve that error.

Thanks for the quick reply. Following your steps I am now able to boot into safe mode but I still cannot boot into windows normally. Here are the fixlogs. Is there anything else I can do?

what happens when you try to boot into normal mode?

Are you able to boot to safe mode with networking?

Please run the following:

Please download TDSSKiller.zip
  • Extract it to your desktop
  • Double click TDSSKiller.exe
  • when the window opens, click on Change Parameters
  • under ”Additional options”, put a check mark in the box next to “Detect TDLFS File System”
  • click OK
  • Press Start Scan
    • If Malicious objects are found then ensure Cure is selected
    • If TDLFS File System is found then ensure Delete is selected
    • Then click Continue > Reboot now
  • Copy and paste the log in your next reply
    • A copy of the log will be saved automatically to the root of the drive (typically C:\)

Yes i can boot my computer into safe mode with networking. When trying to boot into normal mode I see the windows 7 logo glowing, and then my computer just reboots. The c0000135 error is gone. Now its just a BSOD. :( I appreciate your help thus far. It's looking like I might have to do a reinstall...

Try this:

access the Recovery Environment

To do so, restart your computer and begin tapping the F8 key to enable the Advanced Start menu.

If the option Repair your computer is available, select it.

Select a language, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next

It will ask for a password > if you have one > enter it now, or just hit OK if you don't have one.

(If Recovery Environment is not preinstalled, you will need to insert your installation DVD and restart, then press any key when prompted to boot from the CD.

At the Install Windows screen, select Repair your computer
)


In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt

Type bootrec /RebuildBCD and then press ENTER

You should see "The operation completed successfully"

Type EXIT at the command prompt, then select the RESTART button to reboot your system normally.




If it still won't boot normally try booting into the Recovery Environment again

this time choose "Startup Repair"

see if that resolves the issue.

If you are still unable to boot normally, then please run another scan with FRST and post the new log

I tried the "bootrec /RebuildBCD" command but it said it found 0 windows installations. The other methods didnt work either.Here's the most recent FRST scan.

OK, that's great to hear!

let's make sure there is no malware remaining on the system

please re-run ComboFix, allow it to update if it asks to do so

(make sure your security programs are disabled)

post the fresh log
