Windows 7 Pro x 64 repair
Posted on 2014-03-05
One of our employees ended up with a corrupted anti-virus program and hence had tons of spyware / viruses.
I was able to repair it to an almost working state. On the last boot up, something went wrong. I must have accidentally deleted the wrong registry key.
The computer won't boot into save mode either.
I tried a system repair, but no luck. I thought I could do an upgrade, but the system says upgrades can only be performed from within the operating system.
The data on the hard drive is still good and I would like to access it.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
I suppose I could always install a fresh version of Windows (without erasing the hard disk), but my preference would be a repair of some sort. There are no previous restore points (the user disabled them).
The computer is a HP Folio 13 with SSD drive and Windows 7 Professional x64.
Thanks in advance.
