Explorer.exe dosen't show up on startup

I've been using this computer for more than 3 years now, and i'm not sure what happened to it.



Long story short, I had to run CHKDSK, and my keyboards wern't working at the count down point, yet they worked AFTER the countdown (I tried multiple Keyboards.) It took like 3 hours, and then I couldn't Acsess my computer(Well the Windows Explorer.)At that point I was like . It also created a new partition called X:Boot. I had never seen that partition on my computer.

These are the meathods I tried:

I did HKLM/Software/Microsoft/WindowsNT/CurrentVersion/WinLogon and set the shell to explorer.exe, Did not work.It changed back to the thing that was in there

I Tried Windows 7 PE, Did not fix my problems.(I will try the x64 version of the Windows 7 PE later today)

I tried MANY rescue disc, And that didn't work.

Methods I will try later today:

Scanning with MalwareBytes on Windows 7 PE

Trying to change the boot Partition Back to the C: drive(Command Prompt is Also set to the X: partition)

Trying Regedit on C:\ With Windows 7 PE x64(Like I said, I'm using the 32x version of Windows 7 PE)


I've spent almost a DAY of trying to fix this! Can anyone please help?

You state you had to run CHKDSK, why? If you suspect an infection, I suggest you use Malwarebytes Chameleon tool to try and clean any malware. It's free and can be downloaded from the following;

I doesn't really work. I was also FORCED to run CHKDSK. Also, I cannot run Safe Mode. I would really not want to re-install Windows 7 and lose all of my information. Please Reply!

Your list doesn't mention a repair install. You could try it;

Repair Install

Or since i'm using HP, back up my system, and run a repair install, since it's built into the system

It sounds like you may have a "Bootkit Trojan". See this from Kaspersky (TDSSKiller)
