Will not boot into Safe Mode to remove rest of System Security 2009 virus
Posted on 2009-07-06
I have a computer here that I am trying to fix. It is a Dell Dimenson 6310. When it was given to me it had the System Security 2009 virus and it had really messed up the computer. It wouldn't allow you to run EXE files (including the
So thanks to the awesome people here I was able repair the EXE situation by going into the task manager and doing "Run New Task" while holding down the CTRL key, which let me go to the command prompt and run Malwarebytes. The first time it got to run the program it found a bunch of viruses and trojans. I let it remove them, reboot the machine, ran the program again, did the same, let it remove them and reboot the machine. So it's been able to run Malwarebytes and other EXE files.
Malwarebytes seems to always find the same 9 issues each time now. What I understand is that I have to run Malwarebytes from safemode in order to get it to solve these issues. The problem is this computer will not allow you to boot into safe mode anymore.
When you try to go into safemode it gives you a blue screen of death. It tells you to try running Chkdsk /f (which I have done) and gives the following error..
So I can not get into safe mode to finish cleaning up this issue with Malwarebytes.
I can only assume that this is due to the fact that System Security 2009 virus messed up a bunch of stuff that Malwarebytes couldn't fix. Things like the Registery issues (that I had to solve using the UnHookExec.inf fix that I also got from here).
I have not installed or ran other programs yet as I would like to get the opinions of the awesome people here first.
I understand the computer ran just fine before this virus hit so I don't THINK it's a hardware issue (all though who knows!)..
Thanks a bunch!
