Hi, I was watching a video and my screen started disolving and then the system crashed.  Now I have a blue screen when I boot.  I tried using Startup Repair and it said it could repair.  Then offered me an option to try restoring to an earlier time. When I took that option all the restores failed due to an inability to copy this file: "users/office/fonts/purchased/fonts/linotype_fonts/fonts".  I then tried booting and it again went to blue screen.

 

To me it seems like a virus. I have a dual boot Windows7 environment and then second system image runs fine.  I can also pop out of System Repair disk (using the Windows7 installation disks) and still see the files.

 

Do you have any suggestions?  I'd like to avoid reinstalling the software on the machine, as much of it is purchased with three or more cycles of updates and I'd have to go through all the upgrades and customization - likely weeks of work to get it all back to where it was before I watched the bad video :-(
