I run Windows 8 x64. Boot/Start Up process strange. Sometimes BIOS shows, but most start ups Win8 seems to reinstall itself. "Pls wait till your machine ready to use" colors changing, a screen show to drag the mouse to the upper right corner after installation, then empty start screen with my account's name and no tiles. Have to restart for several times then when I am lucky then Win8 starts.
I tried to run, but failed
Bitdefender Bootkit Remover x64
Bitdefender Bootkit Remover x86
AVG Bootkit/Rootkit Removal
All of them failed to run! Seems to ha BSOD then Desktop comes back. It happens running Bitdefender Bootkit Remover x86 and AVG Bootkit Remover only. I even pulled off the LAN cable when tried to run AVG. The others--nothing happens! Tried to run as an admin, but nothing happened.
I had to reinstall my notebook because of the same reason twice up to now and I bought it at the end of February...
Last week Win8 Repair asked for reinstalling, but I didn't. It wouldn't solve the problem and I am fed up with reinstalling OS again and again and again.
Can BIOS be infected?
Infected apart from reinstalls? I mean still be infected inspite of OS reinstall? I have just read that BIOS malware exists! How to disinfect BIOS?
Can someone help me please?
