I would like to run Combofix on the PC to clear infections (Macafee repeatedly finds and deletes a couple of files it reports as Trojans). When I try Combofix it says that it is unable to create some files...
Some months ago I installed Recovery Console on the PC but it has now disappeared!
When I boot the machine I get an error message that boot.ini is corrupt. I've tried to edit it without success so decided to rebuild it using Recovery Console.
I can't install Recovery Console on to the hard Drive because of the faulty boot.ini so I tried to run it from the CD. When I enter the command bootcfg /rebuild it says .."scanning all disks for Window... this will take some time..." After some time an eror message saying Out of memory. I unplugged all drives apart from the boot drive and tried again with the same result - out of memory.
Meanwhile th emachine boots up and runs OK with the exception that it won't do a scandisk (or run Combofix)
Any suggestions as to rectify the situation would be welcome. I think the first thing is how can I get Recovery Console + Bootcfg / rebuild to work. The other matters may then fall into place.
