I ran Kaspersky's 'Rootkit' Scanner and it said it found 6 threats. 3 were 'Locked' 3 were 'Forged'. It then told me to choose one of 3 solutions for each threat...
Skip - Quarantine or Delete. At first I choose 'Quarantine'. Then it told me to rescan, when I did it once again brought up the 6 threats and again offered me the same 3 solutions. This time I chose 'Delete', on reflection I now think it was just showing me what it had in quarantine. It told me to reboot, that's when my PC went belly up!
As I see it, I now have one of two choices...'Repair' or 'Reinstall'. When I first got this PC, I made A repair disk, but I also have a Full Windows 7 Disk.
Here is where I'm at now, I've used the disk to get me to where Windows starts. I've installed the 'Files' and 'Drivers' and it is now asking for...
Files of type: Setup Information
It's showing me 3 HDD and 1 Device with Removable Storage this contains the repair disk. Of the 3 HDD...
1 - (C:)
1 - (X:)
1 - (D:)
and the CD Drive is (E:)
What I'm about to say isn't a riddle, however...
The Drive marked (C:) contains 99.9 MB of which 64.8 is free.
The Drive marked (D:) should be marked (C:) as is my HDD and has 445 GB free.
The (D:) drive should actually be the CD/DVD drive, but that's marked (E:)
The other HDD calls itself Boot (X:)
The PC had several attempts to fix itself with no luck. My guess is that it's trying to fix the drive marked (C:) Windows says the problem is with the Bootmgr. I've chosen 'setup' from BOOT. But Windows won't let me choose the drive to run it on. I've tried changing the drive letters where I am, but it won't let me. Anyone have any ideas, I'm unable the get into Safe Mode.
You need to choose the Repair Option - enter link description hereInsert your Windows 7 startup disc and start your PC. Follow the information given on the screens (as you scroll down) in these instructions.
3 HDD and a disk drive is what I get when I've disconnected all the drives except for the internal OS and the CD/DVD drive. Where the other two come from I haven't got a clue. I've never seen them befor this happened? Or why the drive letters are incorrect?
I managed to get into 'Advanced Boot Options' but it dosen't say for 'Windows 7' it says 'Windows Setup' and although it has more choices than the one on your link shows...'Repair Your Computer' isn't one of them!?
