serious error

  dragonfury 21:50 27 Jun 2004

Recently on my sisters pc, an error (blue screen) kept on coming up stating that an error has occured after the pc got a virus (NTFS.SYS then a bunch of numbers/letters)
I fink this is the main file for her hard disk isnt it? Since then she can no longer boot up as the same message always appears bout 20 seconds after booting up. I have tried a bootup and cd rom support but still no luck. Is this fix able and wot was the cause? (the same screen came up on mine and I want to prevent wot has happened to my sisters to mine, as i can still boot)

I did try to kill the virus but it was denied and wouldn`t let me, why was this? (she was using norton anti virus, then I put on AVG by giroware/soft, but was to late)

What was the name of the virus?

What was "a bunch of numbers/letters" ?

if xp you need to disable system restore while cleansing and maybe in safe mode too.

Use Recovery Console: click here

and use checkdisk.

type: chkdsk /r

it will peform a scan.

"What was "a bunch of numbers/letters" ?" Probably STOP.

STOP ... what? Those numbers and letters mean something!

powerless is right, that should solve it.

if not maybe worth trying fix mbr and fix boot failing that format and reinstall windows.

The numbers/letters are from the STOP blue screen.

We are at cross porpoises here, Powerless. And beware a cross porpoise.

I need those letters and numbers.
