Hi there, first time posting here.


I recently helped my father-in-law remove a trojan named alureon using Windows Defender Offline. Immediately after it was removed, Windows 7 would blue screen on the OS load screen and crash.


Two questions:


1) Is the trojan successfully removed from the PC? Using Microsoft Security Essentials scan in Windows Defender Offline indicated a clean computer, but now it won't boot so I'm not sure.


2) How can I fix this issue and get it to boot up?
