Windows 7 x64 hit by Virus last night and cannot start up windows -URGENT HELP PLEASE!!
Posted on 2011-05-12
Last night, I was browsing the 'net, and was watching some videos at a site I had not been to before.
I have (had??) AVG installed and got a message about a MALWARE program, then my system shut down. I did not have time to read the screen
After that then Windows tried to reboot in "repair mode", if found something wrong with ci.dll. I have tried to get thte system started all of the ways I know of (except a "repair install")
I have tried last know good. I have tried using a restore point (but for some reason it says I dont have any! I am almost positive I had this installed)
I can boot in the the repair mode, then after the diags, I can then select the "Advanced" menu (I may have the working here wrong) that leads you to several other options and through that screen, I can get to a command propt (was not able to start in safemode with command though)
I think I have all DATA backed up now (using xcopy...) and know that it does not back up a lot of system files or protects files.
With that in mind, what could I now do? I dont have my CD drive with me (this is a Thinkpad Laptop, and I have a second HD in the ultrabay)
Last backup was about 1 month ago, but again It was with xcopy...
