HELP! So, yesterday I installed recuva (free) to get back some music I deleted in my recycle bin. And I used a email and code I got from free so i could recover the files. Mean while I used it first time (normal search) in all the PC, and then I used the profound search because I didnt got what I wanted. Then I got some windows updates when shutting down the pc. I have bitdefender antivirus free version and I also regurarly use malware antimalware bites and superantispyware that dont interfere with bitdefender. I dont believe the fact that I got it for free screw me up, I got plenty of cracks from plug in for visual editing software...

Now, when I start up, it ask me if I want to startup launch startup repair or start normally, if I start normally, right before the windows symbol is formed, I get a quick blue screen and it returns and asks me again for the startup.

Now the problem with the other option, the launch repair(recommended), is that "windows loads files", command line says something about partition ID successfully seted for partition 3,4 and 5, and then the asus preload wizard pops up and basically wants to me reset all the PC. " WARNING: all files on your hard disk partitions will be lost during the recovery process... select: recover windows to first partition only, recover windows to entire HD, recover windows to entire HD with 2 partitions

"this will help you restore the pre installed application to the original factory state

If I click cancel, it appears 2 command lines and then starts over again

I have ASUS K55V windows 7 64bits. I think this has happened before and I just shutted it down with the button and start it up again but isnt working down this time. HELP.

Cracked software installs...can indicate or lead to malware situations.
