Windows 7: Boot Failure after Windows Defender Offline

Boot Failure after Windows Defender Offline

Got the Alureon.a trojan/rootkit. Downloaded the Windows Defender Offline and ran it successfully, but now I can not get past the "Verifying DMI pool data....".

I've read countless posts about doing F8 or F10 to go into Advanced Boot Options, but neither of those respond. So I can not change the /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN.

Only things I can go into are the Boot Menu (F12) and BIOS Setup (Del). I've tried every possible combo of Alt+F10, Ctrl+F8, etc. to no avail. Hitting (ESC) to go into Safe Mode option does not work either. Nor vigorously tapping of F8 or F10.

Any suggestions on how to get to the Advanced Boot Menu?

Thank you in advance.

Actually I would suggest booting from a W7 installation DVD and running Startup Repair in your case.

There is no Installation DVD, comps don't come with them anymore it would seem. I do have the recovery DVD's that I made, but when running the repair, it gives an application error during disc 3.

NAPP_KM:NAPP7.exe. Application Error
The exception unknown software exception (0xc000000d)
occurred in the application at location 0x10054162

It happens every time I've tried recovery.

NAPP_KM:NAPP7.exe is some acre recovery partition stuff. Are you trying to go back to "factory settings"? WIN7 partition is deleted already?

From what computer are you posting messages? Is it also win7 x64 as the sick machine?

So even recovery from recover partition fails(?) It already did a lot I assume(?) How long was it busy? Any idea if it already formatted or recreated partitions?

Trying to avoid a complete "factory settings" install where I lose all of my work.

Comp I am on right now is an older XP that is a roommates. It has little more functionality than to get online.

Doing the recovery partition has failed 6 times at the same point. Once disc 3 of recovery is in, it only takes about 5 min before the Error occurs. No idea if it reformatted or recreated partitions, but it still hangs up on the Verifying DMI if I don't go into boot menu.
