Windows did not start successfully
« on: Jan 12, 06, 08:38 PM »
Basically, I was playing solitaire, heard a funny noise, kind of a chug chug chug (very very quietly) then the p.c froze, had a blue screen of death with advice on what to do if this was the first time this has happened and other nonsense about the bios and how to disable some stuff... then it went POOOOFF!!!

Now when you turn it on you get "Windows did not start succesfully, a recent hardware or software change may have caused this" blah blah lots of options of what start up mode to try... tried them all it just goes to the black windows screen then restarts.. a constant loop.

I'm too scared to chuck in a recovery disc, as hubby will freak if he looses all his work.. i can't get the hardrive cable out to put the harddrive in the other puter to rescue his files.. :'(

I just want to crawl under a rock

First stage... let's break out of that loop so we can see what's fallen over, aye?

While it's restarting, hit f8 for safe-mode... one of the options you'll be offered is turning off 'auto-restart on error'.

Then when it BSODs, it'll stay like that so we can see the error-message.

(PS, if you're feeling brave, tell theelnombre you already have used the recovery-disk... then run. It'll teach him about backups...)

Sounds like the HD might have gone tits-up... and the chugging was the 'click-of-death'... if that's the case, the recovery-disk ain't gonna solve it anyways. :(

You really need to figure how to get that drive out into the other machine to see if it's readable at all... if there's not room to get the cable out, removing drive-screws might give you enough movement? (I presume this isn't the lappy you're talking about?)

If there's a second parameter after that 'stop', you might be luckier... you might just have a damaged filesystem... chkdsk /r from the recovery-console would fix that (maybe).

I had a horrible feeling you were going to say that.. (we didn't get the lappy after, we have a second p.c, which i'm currently on)

My brother has got the drive out before so i know it is possible.. i'm just so terrified of breaking it..

Ahh feck, basically then if i manage to get the drive out to check it, if i can't access it, then it is all gone... I HATE PUTERS!!! shoot me now.

"Borrowed" from M$

1.   Start your computer with the Windows startup disks, or with the Windows CD-ROM if your computer can start from the CD-ROM drive.
   
2.   When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to select the repair option.   

3.   If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
   
4.   Type the administrator password when you are prompted to do so. NOTE: If no administrator password exists, press ENTER.   

5.   At the command prompt, on the drive where Windows is installed, type chkdsk /r, and then press ENTER.
   
6.   At the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER to restart your computer.

It doesn't overwrite anything... there may be a few stray files that need to be identifying... in the worst case, it may be impossible and you're no worse off for trying.

That's because Avast was the broken part of the filesystem... the checkdisk you just ran 'found' it, where windows had lost track... maybe Derek will be able to see why, because it seems a bit odd to me the damage was so specific... maybe something naughty was trying to disable the AV and got a bit over-enthusiastic?

yes you have been attacked by one of the sdbots/agobots that target AV's

before we go too far down cleaning can you do this so we can see what else is hiding

  • Download WinPFind
  • Right Click the Zip Folder and Select "Extract All"
  • Extract it somewhere you will remember like the Desktop
  • Dont do anything with it yet!
Reboot into Safe Mode
Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

Doubleclick WinPFind.exe
  • Click " Configure Scan Options"
  • Select " Run Add ONs" and then select ALL the options in the box  below it, Press Apply
  • Now Click "Start Scan"
  • It will scan the entire System, so please be patient!
  • Once the Scan is Complete
    • Reboot back to Normal Mode!
    • Go to the WinPFind folder
    • Locate WinPFind.txt
    • Place those results in the next post!. It will be too big to post  so you will need to attach it to your reply
    [/list]

    and I need a copy of this file to examine please

    please go to  http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/index.php?board=1.0 and upload these files so I can examine them and distribute them to antivirus companies.
    Just press new topic, fill in the needed details and just give a link to your post here & then press the browse button and then navigate to & select the files on your computer, If there is more than 1 file then press the more attachments button for each extra file and browse and select etc and then when all the files are listed in the windows press send to  upload the files ( do not post HJT logs there as they will not get dealt with)

    Files to submit:

    C:\WINDOWS\System32\scvhost.exe

    you want a copy of C:\WINDOWS\System32\scvhost.exe when it is done? as well as the log? (just making sure)

    and see if you can find this file & folder    print$\eraseme_37080.exe

    it is definitely part of the problem and is probably a rootkit hiding lots more

    go to start/run and type services.msc press OK
    when the screen opens scroll down to Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Helper right click and select properties and then on that page press stop service and then set the start up type to disabled, press ok a few times to get back to windows

    be very careful to get the right one as there might be  several similar named ones there

    00123

    now open HJT press config/misc tools and select delete an NT service

    paste this into the box & press OK

    00123

    then
    Download pocket killbox from http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/killbox.exe & put it on the desktop where you can find it easily 

    then

    Run hijackthis, put a tick in the box  beside these entries listed below and ONLY these entries, double check to make sure, then make sure all browser & email windows are closed and press fix checked

    O2 - BHO: {92E1B3F7-0546-421E-9835-904D25B7BA66} - {C4F147D7-BF25-488E-A12B-EFD43E7029BF} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\winvbie.dll (file missing)
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ms-update] scvhost.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [ms-update] scvhost.exe

    now Start  killbox, go to options on the top bar and make sure remove directories is enabled and remove duplicates is UNCHECKED  paste the first file listed below into the full pathname and file to delete box

    and read here

    after I've seen wpfind and if what I think MIGHT be there is there I will want some files to examine but I might suggest format & reinstall

    I have never seen a service with the file running from an IP number & that suggests a complete take over of your system if he is able to do that
