I have an HP 15-g029wm laptop that was running really slow.  I ran several "Clean Up" tools, following the directions here: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-anonymizergadget


After running the steps, things seemed better, so I ran delfix to clean up the computer.  When I tried to restart, as the desktop is loading, I get a notification "Failed to connect to a windows service: couldn't connect to SENS". That's not the whole message, but hopefully you get the idea.  ZAM.exe pops up with an error message that it cannot start and I have the option to kill it or try to reload it. Then, I get a message that reads: "PC will restart in one minute. Windows ran into a problem and has to restart". Then it all starts, again.


I have booted from a recovery disc and tried to run "Start Up Repair", but it fails every time and the SrtTrail.txt says "Startup repair incompatible with your system". I tried a couple of restore points....FAIL.  I tried a reset (keep personal files)...FAIL. I have tried CMD FIXMBR, FIXBOOT, Rebuild.


I tried sfc /scannow but it says another recovery is in progress and I need to restart. Restart and enter loop, again.


I cannot seem to get it to start in Safe Mode.  I have tried many different options, but to no avail.


I'm at a loss.  Please help.
