Windows 7: Remove Kaspersky Rescue 10 Boot Screen

Remove Kaspersky Rescue 10 Boot Screen

Turns out, I wasn't paying attention. I'd burned two separate discs, I forgot what the first one was, but it wasn't Kaspersky.

After running the virus scan, Kaspersky ejected one of my disc drives and I removed what I thought was the Kaspersky disc. With Golden's response, I checked my Disk Management, and noticed that I have a disc in one of my DVD drives, which happened to be the Kaspersky disc. I removed the disc, problem solved. Thank you, Golden.

In short, the culprit was a human error. I guess we all have our moments. Oops!


I had this nasty virus on my computer that I finally got rid of with the combination of Kapersky, MSE and Malwarebytes.

In the process, I booted my computer with the Kaspersky Rescue Disc 10. Now, my computer has this bright green Kaspersky Rescue Disc boot screen, after the BIOS has finished booting. It gives me 10 seconds to press any key for menu options, probably so it can run off the disc, even with the disc no longer in the drive. My computer does in fact boot into Windows, virus free.

How do I remove this and return my computer back to its normal boot sequence, thus removing the Kaspersky screen?

Hi,

Just to clarify ; are you saying that the BIOS splash screen has a Kaspersky image/screen even though the rescue disk CD has been removed when you boot? That is very odd indeed, as it implies soemthing was written to the BIOS.

Did you have other USB devices installed at the time that you used the Kaspersky rescue CD?

Regards,
Golden

See the image on Step #4 on this link. When I boot up now, this is what I see after my BIOS screen (that is, the screen stating my motherboard model, press DEL to enter the setup, etc.). I do not have a disc in my drive. At the time, I might have a USB Flash disk in my computer which isn't in, anymore and a few other USB items (phone cradle, IR for TV). I don't have any idea why any of those would have an affect on the boot sequence. Something has probably been modified on the MBR I'm sure and I just don't know how to fix it. It's probably like when you create a multi-boot system with Windows and Linux and you boot to GRUB (if I remember correctly that's what it's called) to choose your OS.

Hi,

You don't have a dual boot system by any chance do you?

Well, this has got to be one of the oddest things I've seen. No anti-virus suite should ever write anything to the BIOS or MBR...if that is what this is.

Can you check your system to see whether some sort of Kaspersky Updater was automatically uinstalled - this might have been used to update the virus definitions prior to the scan. It might help if you posted a image of your Disk Management screen to see if there is some odd EXT4 partition hanging around as a consequence of the scan/updater.

Regards,
Golden
