Windows 7: Computer won't start after restore of factory settings

Computer won't start after restore of factory settings

Hello,

Thank you ahead of time, I have had problems with my computer that techs don't seem to be able to resolve, my computer had a virus one that redirects you to other pages from Google, one day I'm working on it and it just crashed, the computer would get a blue screen at the Login in all other than Safe mode (without network) I did a System Restore to a past date and I was able to get it working with Safe Mode and Safe Mode with Network, but Normal Mode would not work (I had no internet).

I hired an IT that remotely removed the virus, after that the computer will not pass the black screen with windows logo it just shuts down and restart, I did a system restore with the factory image, but it does the same thing.

Please help, Thank you so much!

Try running system repair from the Windows 7 install dvd. You need to run it 3-4 times.

If that doesnt help, run a sfc scan, again 3-4 times.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I have windows 7 home edition in disc, but since I my dell PC did not come with one and it is Windows 7 home premium, it says that the disc does not match the Windows version, doesn't the image from the factory re-install windows and erase everything?

Thank you for the help
