Windows 7 BSOD Won't Boot After Rootkit Removal

I had an infected user computer and I ended up running the McAfee Rootkit Removal Tool before finally getting the system cleaned. It was able to detect and remove one the TDSS rootkit variants. But now the Windows 7 system won't boot and blue screens before reaching a logon prompt. Running a repair doesn't work, restoring from a restore point doesn't fix it, unable to boot into safe mode, tried most of the standard things to check and try.

At that point, I searched on several of the newsgroups and found a few postings that matched this situation pretty closely. They ran a FRST utility (or 64 bit version in my case) to list the system specific settings, and were then able to get fix option to correct the problem.

I am not a member of any of those sites, but my company is setup with Experts Exchange so I wanted to see if anyone on EE can help me out on this one. I have run the FRST utility and enclosed the scan text file.

You can try this method to see if  the infection caused an issue with your MBR or Boot Sector:

There are probably other tools available if you don't have an installation disc handy.

I would also connect the drive to another computer and try to access and back up your data before trying anything.

Looks like your BCD has been hijacked.

Get into a command prompt with the System Repair function and then:


bootrec /rebuildbcd

If Windows installation is identified, Enter Y or Yes to Add installation to boot list.

If not, remove and then rebuild BCD:

bcdedit /export c:\bcdbackup
attrib c:\boot\bcd -h -r -s
ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
bootrec /rebuildbcd

Enter Y or Yes to add installation to boot list.

You probably want to go back to C:\boot\bcd.old and delete that if everything works.
