Hello.  Running Vista HP.  Computer was slow, VERY slow.  Could access start and run.  Rebooted with Hitman Pro USB.  Options 1 and 2 only booted to a black screen.  Option 3 booted and HMP found 1472 items, 1 boot sector virus (I failed to write the name down), and 15 other threats.  I've used HMP what seems like hundreds of times before and never had an issue like this.

 

Computer reboots into recovery mode (Sony recovery partition).  Used testdisc to see if it could find the missing partition and it did, but says it can't recover it because drive is too small.  Nothing else has been done and the drive was far from being full.

 

Any suggestions?

Hi and welcome.
 
Lets give it a try.
 
Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to a flash drive.
 
Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
 
Plug the flash drive into the infected PC.
 
If you are using Vista or Windows 7 enter System Recovery Options.
 
To enter System Recovery Options from the Advanced Boot Options:
  • Restart the computer.
  • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until Advanced Boot Options appears.
  • Use the arrow keys to select the Repair your computer menu item.
  • Select US as the keyboard language settings, and then click Next.
  • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
  • Select your user account an click Next.
  • Note: In case you can not enter System Recovery Options by using F8 method, you can use Windows installation disc, or make a repair disc. Any Windows installation disc or a repair disc made on another computer can be used.
 
 
To enter System Recovery Options by using Windows installation disc:
  • Insert the installation disc.
  • Restart your computer.
  • If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc. If your computer is not configured to start from a CD or DVD, check your BIOS settings.
  • Click Repair your computer.
  • Select US as the keyboard language settings, and then click Next.
  • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
  • Select your user account and click Next.
  • On the System Recovery Options menu you will get the following options:
  • Startup Repair
  • System Restore
  • Windows Complete PC Restore
  • Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool
  • Command Prompt
  • Select Command Prompt
 
Once in the Command Prompt:
  • In the command window type in notepad and press Enter.
  • The notepad opens. Under File menu select Open.
  • Select "Computer" and find your flash drive letter and close the notepad.
  • In the command window type e:\frst (for x64 bit version type e:\frst64) and press Enter
Note: Replace letter e with the drive letter of your flash drive.
  • The tool will start to run.
  • When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the flash drive. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
