Windows vista repair?

Post by megatails5 on Sun Jun 19, 2011 7:23 pm

All of a sudden my laptop stopped working, an error message telling me about hard disk drive failure displayed and told me to restart. I did so, then after boot, a blank desktop background, no icons on the desktop. and an empty start menu, (only the bits where you can open most used things, the side bit which has Documents, Control Panel, etc is still there) . Then Windows Vista Repair pops up, with numerous hardware problems, such as 83 degrees C RAM temp, which is absurd as the fan isnt even blowing out air higher than 40 degrees... I allowed it to "scan" my system, and then it asked me to buy some obviously scamware product. I could still open the internet, so i downloaded malwarebytes, performed a quickscan, which showed 7 infected objects, it deleted all of them successfully, and then i performed a full scan which found nothing...
I believe my laptop to now be safe, but am performing a scan with microsoft safety scanner just in case, but i want to know how i get my icons, start menu and background back...
I will post a hijack this in two minutes, i need to install it first.
Thanks

Hi,

Please download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] to your Desktop. (If you already have it downloaded, then just follow the instructions below).
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
  • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in

    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
    %systemroot%\system32\*.dll /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\system32\*.exe /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\Tasks\*.job /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\system32\drivers\*.sys /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\System32\config\*.sav
    %systemroot%\system32\*.sys

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update\Results\Install|LastSuccessTime /rs


  • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.

    • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
    • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) and paste (Edit->Paste) the contents of these files, one at a time


Note: in the event that OTL fails to run, please use alternate download links to try again:
