Can't do a thing, no safe mode etc.

Is it possible to run rkill and combofix from a working drive on/to the crashed drive?

If you have an install disk you can do a system restore or repair installation from it.

 

Here is a tutorial.

Thanks for answering everyone and I'm sorry I didn't answer until now as I've been working on this problem since Friday night.

 

Dale, Thanks for the detailed insrts. I tried all you said before except for the KEY commands like FIXBOOT etc. When I did your instructions I could not get any restore points, may have been my error I don't know. Anyway I lost ground, couldn't even get the safe mode menu after trying your suggs. So this A.M. I copied and pasted as many windows files as I could whith crashed drive slaved,( only locked out of about 6 or so) and almost made it.  No blue screen crash any more but just stops on second welcome screen.

 

Does anyone know?

What I think would work is a seperate os boot that will allow copy and paste of all windows files, but I don't know if that will get the reg and other hidden stuff.

A friend of mine has an old CD of Drive works that he thinks will do this, but he is out of town for a week.

 

Also

Does anyone know how to run rkill and combofix on an infected drive that is running as a slave so win XP is not running and may be fixed?

AND

Is there a way to copy reg from a backup to a crashed drive?

Thanks

 

Louis

I can't see the BSOD as it only appears for about 1/4 sec and pause did not work. But since I seem to have fixed the startup crash and made it to the 2nd welcome screen freeze, it appears to be a different problem.

 

TsVk!

I've tried all the windows install disks repairs but they either did not help or even made it worst.

 

Thanks again to all.

PS I used  OS2 for years and it was so easy to fix, about 15 mins  rebuild with all apps and data on a seperate partition, ( which you can do in windows but as far as I know you still have to reinstall programs even though they are still there, at least the data is OK) What was Gates thinking?

If your system is infected...this topic needs to be moved to a forum that has the skill necessary to alleviate malware issues.

 

Malware is NOT a Windows issue and this topic is currently posted in the XP forum.

 

Do you want me to move it to one of our two forums dealing with malware situations?
