First of all, I've scoured the web for the answer to my problem, and the similar 'fixes' on these forums did not work for me at all.
My problem is is that my mom had a virus transfer to my computer through our network. My mom promptly dealt with the virus on her computer before it was too late.
The virus quickly disables all of the services (and putting restrictions on them so I cannot resume them) that are running on your computer. It also disables all anti-virus software. Needless to say, this is a pretty severe virus.
I was able to run Windows in safe-mode until I attempted to do a re installation of windows. When I did that, everything was going fine until the installation froze at 'Completing installation'. I was forced to shut off the computer by holding down the power button. When I restarted the computer, it went on to say that I needed to continue the installation. Okay; fine. Then it got to the 'Setup is starting services' screen, followed by the 'Windows could not complete the installation' or something. Then it restarts my computer automatically, and just repeats itself. I cannot boot my computer in safe mode, or 'normally' without getting the same error message. Even if it did let me boot my computer 'normally', nothing will respond/work because the virus has already done too much damage to my computer. 'System repair' does not work either.
Things to note:
- I don't know the exact model of my motherboard, but I know that it is ASUS.
- I have my Windows 7 installation disc.
- Holding down '0' does not work.
- I only have my keyboard plugged in - no other peripherals.
- In the bios, everything will lead back to either an automatic boot, or to the list where it lets me pick system repair, safe mode, etc.
- F10/F11/F8 will not work.
My goal right now is to just completely reset my computer, lose everything, and just reinstall windows from scratch.
I'm willing to try anything right now, but I am really, really, hoping for fixes that haven't already been said before.
I'm worried that with how many problems are posted on these forums, my problem will go unnoticed. But if anybody at least reads this, I just wanted to say thanks. I know that my problem isn't exactly the simplest to solve.
