Hi Bleeping Newbie Kenterbent Here....

 

With instructions found on bleeping, I was attempting to deal with the iexplorer virus/trojan on my 2 (almost twin) Dell Computers (XPS M1530). Distracted by the purging process, I added programs before deleting files to make room. I was supposed to delete 20-30 GB …. but forgot.

 

The Dell shut down and would only boot halfway into the windows magic swirl…. and stop. I tried a few basic boot options and safe modes to try to get in and delete something/ anything off the HD (this was my strategy). No go.

 

Back on Bleeping I ended up with your offered Ultimate Boot CD…. which seemed promising…. I was into my nineth try when The pull of a death in the family made me put it down for two weeks and here I am…. Thinking I should ask for help…. With the boot disc options …. or something I just don’t know about yet.

Sorry for your loss!  No words are enough at times like that.

When you are ready, can you, on another computer with same OS, make a USB boot stick?

THAT was a very big screen shot ...... showing my Ultimate Boot options...... and I could make a boot stick if it would be better than the two disk options.... pushed aside by the screen shot in the last post .... ( dang)
