I am new to the forum and I came here because I saw that you helped out someone that had a similar problem. It's really cool that you all are here to help out the computer illiterate like myself. So thanks in advance for whatever help you can give me. I am very glad that you all are here.
Here's the issue:
I tried to start my computer the other day and it wouldn't boot. The windows icon would just start to come up it would flash blue screen for a bit and then reload to the windows error recovery screen. I tried the windows startup repair and it said it could not repair my computer automatically. My laptop (Dell Latitude E6400) leads a rough life and so originally I thought it might be a hardware issue but after doing some research I think it might be some malware or something like that. I know that there was some sort of insidious thing on my computer before because I was periodically having to go into my LAN settings and unclick use proxy settings, otherwise it would just go to whatever website it felt like, but I never thought it would blow up like this.
When I run the Windows Startup Repair and it says it is unable to automatically fix my computer these are the problem details that I get:
Problem event Name: StartupRepairOffline
Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 03: unknown
Problem Signature 04: 21199373
Problem Signature 05: AutoFailover
Problem Signature 06: 7 (or sometimes 9)
Problem Signaure 07: NoRootCause
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033
Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks again.
