Hello, Alex. :)

 

 

Can you please follow these instructions.

 

I would first like you to try a System Restore from the recovery console.  Choose a point well before the issue. You can get there by following the instructions below. If you are unable to complete a system restore then go ahead and get me the logs from FRST so that I can see what is going on with your machine. 

 

  • On a clean machine, please download FRST 64bit or FRST 32 bit and save it to a flash drive. Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. Plug the flashdrive into the infected PC.
  • If you are using Windows 8 consult How to use the Windows 8 System Recovery Environment Command Prompt to enter System Recovery Command prompt. If you are using Vista or Windows 7 enter System Recovery Options. To enter System Recovery Options from the Advanced Boot Options:
    • Restart the computer.
    • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until Advanced Boot Options appears.
    • Use the arrow keys to select the Repair your computer menu item.
    • Select US as the keyboard language settings, and then click Next.
    • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
    • Select your user account an click Next.

    Note: In case you can not enter System Recovery Options by using F8 method, you can use Windows installation disc, or make a repair disc. Any Windows installation disc or a repair disc made on another computer can be used. To make a repair disk on Windows 7 consult: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/2083-system-repair-disc-create.html To enter System Recovery Options by using Windows installation disc:

    • Insert the installation disc.
    • Restart your computer.
    • If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc. If your computer is not configured to start from a CD or DVD, check your BIOS settings.
    • Click Repair your computer.
    • Select US as the keyboard language settings, and then click Next.
    • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
    • Select your user account and click Next.

    On the System Recovery Options menu you will get the following options: Startup Repair System Restore Windows Complete PC Restore Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool Command Prompt Select Command Prompt Once in the Command Prompt:

    • In the command window type in notepad and press Enter.
    • The notepad opens. Under File menu select Open.
    • Select "Computer" and find your flash drive letter and close the notepad.
    • In the command window type e:\frst (for x64 bit version type e:\frst64) and press Enter Note: Replace letter e with the drive letter of your flash drive.
    • The tool will start to run.
    • When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
    • Press Scan button.
    • It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the flash drive. Please copy and paste it to your reply.

Like I say these instructions provide you with a way to get into the recovery console to perform a system restore, try that first. If you are able to perform a system restore then follow these instructions.

Help Us Help You. Information needed to assist. 

 

We will still need to check for any malware. If you are unable to perform a system restore then get me the logs from FRST via the instructions above. If you are able to run FRST in safe mode then that will be fine as well.

I had the same problem but you know what I did I just take the battery out of the computer and put it back in and once you didn't that it should say disk checking you'll want to skip that and go straight to your pc and run ccCleaner if your disk is full

Hello Alicia

When the repair starts, shut down your system by holding the power button for a couple of seconds, once it reboots, it should go into Advanced Repair Options. If it does not then repeat the steps again. Try for atleast 3 times. 

Does this allow you to access the recovery mode? If not, then let me know, if it does let me know and we'll continue

I have the same problem and i tried holding the power button which made the PC turned off, but still didnt fix my problem

Well, I have an issue. After following the instructions here up till "The notepad opens. Under File menu select Open." the next step is where the problem lies. I can't find 'Computer' in the File menu after selecting Open; furthermore, I don't know what a 'flash drive letter' is. Any help please?
