I typed in: copy C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\fdc.inf_0c3c0ab2 C:\
And it said the system can not find the file specified.


Edit: It looks like i do not have a Driverstore in my system32 directory.

Did you say you can or cannot boot to the XP setup?

I recommend a repair install: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I can't boot into windows though either through safemode or regular. It takes me to the windows screen but the scroll bar doesn't move and then after about 5 seconds on the windows screen it goes to the BSoD.

In regards to your other instructions, as I said, I don't have a DriverStore but I do have a DrvStore. However, it does not have a FileRepository in it.

Would doing this do anythign for me?

rmdir c:\windows\prefetch

md c:\windows\prefetch




Or back to my renaming the troubled driver would it work if I did:

cd c:\windows\system32\drivers

ren fdc.sys fdc.old

copy c:\windows\system32\dllcache\fdc.sys c:\

Course at that point I don't know if I just reboot or if I need to recopy back into the windows/system32/drivers directory a second time?

Update:

I didn't try my above idea cause i wasn't 100% sure if it would work or make things worse. But what I did do was got into the BIOS and switched my floppy drive controller from Internal to USB and it allowed windows to boot up. However, ComboFix is now finishing its original scan that I started yesterday. Is that a good thing or bad thing? I guess at this point it doesn't matter cause I am to afraid to cancel the scan.

Edit: ComboFix scan completed. It deleted a file in the system32/drivers directory but it went to fast I couldn't read it. It also said that the c:\windows\system32\drivers\fdc.sys is infected and it will restore it. Then after about 3 minutes it went to my desktop with no desktop icons on it and then a mini cmd blue screen came up that says "Rebooting Windows....Please Wait" However, that rebooting windows screen has been up now for about 20minutes. Any suggestions or should I manually reboot windows.

Note: The computer is not locked up though which is why I am hesitant to manually reboot it myself.

Go ahead and manually reboot. After that file gets restored, it should be fine.

ComboFix should not freeze up.
