Windows 7: Windows 7 wont get past login screen

I'd like to try this but as I mentioned in my previous post, my win 7 disk is at my parents house which isn't accessible as they live in a different country to me. I could get them to post it over if that is a possibility. How would I go about a repair install? just pop the disk in and select the option?

Thanks

Hi again, windows has just re-started after about 40 mins of the startup repair loading screen. I've got a black screen now. So I'm going to let it run through the whole thing again - I selected start win normally from the options instead of choosing startup repair.

I'll keep you posted - time now 19:24

I guess you aren't able to access Windows at all? I've just remembered that you can only perform a repair install from within Windows 7

A clean reinstall will be the only option, however, you may wish to disconnect and reconnect the hard-drive to a different computer in order to transfer the data, as it is better to delete and format all the partitions when doing a installation.

No I can't access windows at all... yet. I'll keep on trying this and see where it get's me. I don't have too many friends here in London so I don't think I'll be able to get my stuff off of it. That's a bit concerning for me. =(

Start up repair's processing the info again so I'll keep my fingers x'd.

Thanks for all the advice dude.

No problem, and a Start up Repair will be better.

You will be able to perform a Startup Repair from your Windows 7 Installation DVD and may work better than Windows attempting to perform it itself.

I would wait until you can get your Windows 7 Installation DVD back or get it posted to you, and then perform a Startup Repair from the DVD instead.

What steps did you take for disinfection? Win7 will often not repair because it is infected causing damaged System files. That's why those are the first steps in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start

I've not taken any steps for disifection due to the fact I've got Kaspersky anti virus on there and I've not opened a virus program. Also I can't get into windows at all, not via safe mode, not via loggin in. Theres no way to run anything. Heck I can't even see the D:\ in cmd prompt.

I wouldn't know how to download the malbytes program.

Sorry
