Windows 7: ataport.sys BSOD

29 Apr 2011   #11

Windows 7 Professional 32 Bit
 
 

Hey mgorman - you've been great so far, so thanks again! Bear with me just a bit longer...

Ok, so I got tdsskiller to boot in recovery mode (with the gui), and it says it got rid of the rootkit. But for some reason everytime something goes right something else goes wrong... When I was restarting to run TDSSkiller, I accidentally booted to Windows the first time (instead of to recovery). Only this time I got a BSOD (STOP 0x0000007B - no driver listed, no memory dump). I went ahead and ran tdsskiller, like I said, and it got rid of the virus, but I still can't boot. Safe or normal mode, same error. I've tried the recovery options again. to no avail. Looking around google I'm getting the impression the error has something to do with a bad boot sector. Should I try repairing the mbr? Any other ideas?

Edit: Just FYI I've got another partition with Ubuntu, so I boot first to GRUB - I don't know if that affects anything.

Rootkits infect the MBR. Search SF on how to fix your MBR. I would link you but I'm on my phone

Well I've run fixmbr and fixboot and all it did was get rid of GRUB, but the BSOD's still there. Any ideas?

So are you able to boot into windows?

No - it loads all the drivers, gets most of the way through it's little windows animation and then I get the BSOD (0x0000007b).

Hmm. Try to disable driver signature enforcement through the advanced boot menu (F8) and see if you can get into windows

You might have to format your computer. The rootkits are nasty little virus' and usually the only way to get rid of them for good is by a wipe. I would back up your data and then do a clean all on your drive and reinstall windows

Alright, I went ahead and backed up and reinstalled. Everything looks good so far, and no sign of the virus. Thanks for all you help on this! Any suggestions for how to do a final check to make sure the rootkit's gone?

If you did a clean all then you should be all set, but if you want to be certain, run the TDDSKiller and see if you can get past the 80% mark
