I made the mistake of simply clicking a seemingly harmless external link on Facebook. Firefox crashed and I noticed my system was responding slowly. Instead of trusting my instincts and immediately running a scan/system restore I assumed it was one of the times where Firefox just screwed over the computer so I restarted it only to enter the first circle of hell.
Please describe in detail how this situation came about.
What version of Puppy are you using? Are you booting Puppy from a CD or flashdrive?

Hmmm ... so it would seem that the system is infected with malware, and that is causing the problem.
In that case, you have a choice at this stage. Which of the following would you prefer to pursue?
- Get assistance from an experienced helper to get your Windows system back up and running again.
- Reinstall Windows using your recovery disks or the factory recovery partition.
- Do you know if there is a recovery partition on the laptop's hard drive?

Do you know how to open a terminal window in Puppy?
Though, how would I check to see if there is a recovery partition on my HDD?

I appreciate the gesture, but that doesn't help me since the thread has already been made.
Since this almost definitely is malware related i would follow the instructions here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic182397.html to receive the help you need. Good Luck!

I cannot enter system recovery options as it loops back to the Windows Boot Manager window that I described in the thread.
Enter System Recovery Options.
