Hello all,

 

Before I spend hundreds of dollars taking this to someone to fix I thought I would start here. I am at your mercy.

 

I recently tried to remove parts of my Avast protection that was still lagging on my computer using there .exe file from here: http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility

 

I actually clicked the exe without being in safe mode and it prompted me to restart to go into safe mode. This is where the endless reboot has been going on.

 

I’ve done numerous tests (harddrive, memory)  and everything seems to be in working order. If anyone can guide me through this I would greatly appreciated it!

 

Video of it here:

 

you can also email me directly at ant.relax@gmail.com.  Using a friends computer for a few more hours.

So as to understand properly, does the loop only happen when going into Safe Mode, or in Regular mode too?

Correct. No matter which mode I select it will try to load in safe mode.

If I say "start windows normally" it trys to go in safe mode.

I tried to restore to a restore point and got an Ox8000ffff error code everytime.

I've never seen this particular issue, but the easy place to start is to boot up from a repair disc.

If you don't have one, which I suspect you don't, any Win 7 installation disc will do, and if you don't have one of those, you can go on any Win 7 machine and create a repair disc in 5 minutes flat.

All you need is a blank DVD to do it.

The idea here is that you might do an automatic type of start up repair that would stop the loop and allow you to fully boot.

If that doesn't work, pls advise.


All is well in Paradise.

Can this be done while saving my data or will it wipe it out?
