Hello!

 

I've got a Toshiba Satellite L305-S5924 laptop running Vista Home Premium 6.0. It's able to boot normally, but it's filled with crud that I want to remove with MalwareBytes and ADW Cleaner and stuff like that (basically going through all this: http://malwaretips.com/blogs/malware-removal-guide-for-windows/), so I'm trying to boot it into Safe Mode With Networking. I can press F8 and get into the advanced boot options and choose SMWN, but when it starts pulling up files, it seems to hang up at crcdisk.sys. I tried running Startup Repair, bootrec.exe /fixmbr and bootrec /fixboot from the System Recovery Options, but they all say nothing is wrong. Am I just being impatient, or could there be something bigger here?

 Try running those two programs in normal mode, and see if that helps.  Also I'd try SFC to see if it can find and fix corrupt files.  Click Start and type CMD in the search box.  Right-click CMD.EXE and click Run as administrator.  Then from the command prompt type sfc /scannow.

 

Good luck.


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:
