Hi. I have Sony Vaio Laptop running Vista Home Premium SP2.
I recently had a nasty virus, a rootkit trojan, which I believe I fully removed with the help of your great forum(s). However. During the time the virus was present, I started to get this problem: When trying to wake my laptop from Sleep mode, it would restart and take me to the 'windows did not shut down properly' screen. I could 'Start Windows normally' and it would go back to full functionality, running perfectly smoothly.
Today, I had the same issue of it restarting from Sleep mode.
I ran sfc /scannow and it revealed that 'Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them' (When I try to open the CBS.log I got the message: Access is denied).
I set my laptop to run chkdsk on the next startup. Restarted, and now it wont boot, even in safe mode. I just get a black screen when trying to boot normally; & when attempting to boot in safe mode, the system hangs at "crcdisk.sys"
I've tried running Startup Repair but receive the message: Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically.
In the Startup Repair 'Diagnosis and repair details:' log, under 'Root cause found:' it states:
"Unspecified changes to system configuration might have caused the problem."
I tried a System Restore, it did not work. Repair Action: System Restore | Result: Failed. Error code = 0x570
Please help! I have too many programs, files & data to even consider wiping & reinstalling the OS.
