Windows 7: Wimfsf.sys page fault...

Wimfsf.sys page fault...

Buddy's computer was all virused up so he asked me to take a look at it. I pulled his drive, plugged it in to my computer and ran Microsoft Security Essentials which found and automatically removed a single virus: VirTool:JS/Obfuscator

now when I try to boot I get to the Windows logo screen and it reboots immediately forever looping.

I put in the Windows 7 CD and boot to the install screen and select repair but nothing happens. if I select "install windows" I get a BSOD with this:

wimfsf.sys

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

Is there a way to fix this without wiping out the entire drive?

Thanks in advance for any help out there!

You should use another copy of windows, sounds like either the disc is damaged or the iso you made it from was.
you can get fresh iso's here, they'll work so long as you pick the right version and use a legitimate key.

I can't be certain, it's the only time I saw that specific error before. Turned out it was just the disc

I'm gettin real frustrated here. I bought a copy of Win 7 Home Premium a few months ago. Installed it on a machine of mine. Tried to use it on buddy's computer and it gives me the wimfsf.sys BSOD error. So I go out and buy another USB stick, create the bootable windows install and get the same error when I boot from the stick. probably cuz I used the same CD to make the stick. So I don't have the cash to go buy ANOTHER Windows 7 install cd so how do I get my hands on an ISO I can use to burn one with. I have a legit key to use, just need the install cd that I already have!!!

2 days messing around cuz of a bad cd. how much do you charge a customer for THAT????
