Dell Inspiron N7110 infected with too many viruses. Windows 7 HP
Posted on 2012-09-14
I have a laptop here that has been infected with an almost record amount of viruses I've ever seen on one computer, to the point to where when you turn on the computer you just get a blinking cursor. I've removed the hard drive and I've used msse to remove all it found. I've tried to boot to a backup registry I found on the computer. Nothing works.
I simply deleted the OS partition and left the recovery partition on there (since using the repair option doesn't seem to work)
Now when I turn on the computer it says Windows is loading files like you would normally see when booting to the recovery partition, but it keeps cycling over and over back to the Dell logo then the recovery partition, as if something might have corrupted the recovery partition too.
What would you guys do from here?
I'm starting to think I should go find my Dell Windows 7 install disk and say screw the recovery partition.
