Hi everyone,
I was doing a virus scan using malware bytes and spyware anti malware,
Spyware anti malware found a worm brontok along with other viruses. I restarted the computer
And since then, iit doesn't boot past start up repair. At one point start up repair results stated that Boot Critical file c:\windows\system32\drivers\bea705d11907dc09 was corrupt, but since that was found the computer still goes to start up repair and the error isn't shown anymore. Please note that I don't own a copy of the windows vista cd. Help!!!

Thank you

On boot press F8 continuously, scroll down to " Last Known Good Configuration " press enter, computer should reboot to the last time it was running ok !

 

Or alternatively, boot pressing F8 continuously, scroll down to " Safe Mode " press enter, then when it boots into safe mode, run Malwarebytes, and Spyware Anti-malware, follow removal instructions of anything infected, then reboot !

 

Hope this helps !!!!!

Hi there, just a couple of questions :

What OS are you running ?

Did you download anything or, did you do anything differently before this started to happen ?

If you have access to another computer, and your not bothered about losing anything that you haven't backed up, you can download a recovery disk from this link http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/windows-vista-recovery-disc-download/ it is not free anymore, but i have used them before, and it done the job !!

The link i posted is not expensive, it recovers Vista but not your files, but what you you can do afterwards is, download recuva from this link http://www.piriform.com/recuva if you take a look at this, again it is another piece of software i have used in the past, and is very useful !!!

After clicking on the link, where it says "more information" click on features, and you can read what this piece of software can do to help you !

I just realized that I infact have service pack 1, I was told on another forum to type into command prompt:
C: cd boot
attrib bad -s -h -r
ren c:boot\bcd bcd.old
bootrec /RebuildBcd

This found a windows installation so I selected yes, but unfortunately after restarting the laptop, windows boot manager comes up saying
that windows failed to start and to insert a windows installation disc and repair the problem, it also said at the bottom:
File:\windows\system32\drivers\bea705d11907dc09.sys
Status: 0xc0000098
Info: Windows failed to load because a critical system driver failed is missing or corrupt
I don't own a copy of the vista cd, I hope you can help!
