Hi, I'm posting here sent off from the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, .

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/486895/malwarepackergen-win7-wont-start-help/page-2 .


The story is as follows:


Five days ago my laptop went dead.

I had been working at home all day, and had stopped for a while. When I came back, the laptop was off. I though it had "suspended". Pressed the button, and it made a strange beep (like the buffer beep). There was some disk activity, but the monitor wouldn't turn on, and so I switched the laptop off. And it never turned back on correctly again.



So this is what happens now:



Select Start Windows normally


Win 7 starts loading, but at the end of the "starting Windows logo" it appears the BSOD and restarts again. Over and over.



Select Startup Repair


It loads HP Recovery Manager.

System Restore - tried different restore points, but none works. Non specified error during system restore. (0x80070002)

Chkdsk Windows Partition - OK

Chkdsk Recovery Partition - OK


Select F8 (safe mode)

Every option makes BSOD

Stop BSOD reboot option - at the BSOD the Technical Information is:

*** STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x0000000000000003, 0xFFFFFA8008FF2B30, 0xFFFFFA8008FF2E10, 0xFFFFF80003B82470)


Booting with Hiren's Boot CD


I ran the WD utilidity to check hard drives, and found no bad sectors.


The Antivirus behave strangely and mostly won't update or run. Malwarebytes runs an detects stuff I posted in the Virus forum, but which are, according to them, false positives.



I'm getting desperate, since I need my laptop to work, and 5 days have passed...

Please HELP

HI again!


No need to reply.


Backed up all important files (took some time)

Reinstalled Windows 7.


Happier than ever. Recommend it to everyone, once in a while.


Win7 is now clean from 4 years of clutter, and running smooth as never was
