Windows 7: GSOD safe mode no bueno

Not for nothin', but isn't it possible to write Hitman to a bootable CD? I know that my BIOS doesn't include the option to boot from USB. There are probably others. Is it necessary to use a USB drive for a specific reason?

Yes, remove the hard drive(s) and connect it/them up to clean system and back up their data there, then re-format the Hd(s), put back the critical data on a partition not used for the OS, and then return them to the system, then re-install Windows.

If the HD is 3+ years old, it's a good time to think about replacing it, also.

Yes it is but you still would need a USB Flash drive to run HitmanPro . The bootable disc is only used if cant boot off your USB drive in the bios . You use the disc to do the Kickstart then it searches for the hitman pro exe file on your USB Flash drive .

was waiting on the insult. Like all these sites gurus treating people like crap. thanks. totally expected.
was really hoping this one was different.
If my comment is perceived as an insult, you have my apology. The comment did not imply you, or your action. I treat people with the dignity deserved.

There are computers where the BIOS does not include the option to boot from USB, and, in this day an age of so many kinds of USB pen or external drives, to me, it seems incredible the manufacturer does not include the option to boot from them.

The comment was made, not by you vista and it contained this day and age cant do something simple I dont remember and if you want to go back and look feel free. It may not seem like an insult to you but trust me it did to me. Anyway it was not you so, kinda like all the people that felt the Zimmerman verdict was a slap in their face too even though they knew nobody involved. Not directed at or to you. Any way, I just came back to see if there was any helpful notes about hitman, seems I am the only one it wants an internet connection from, so I have to get back to it. If I offended you by talking back to someone else talking to me, sorry.

For those that do not know, and without a condescending tone in my voice, in hitman go to advanced settings and check early warning scoring to place it in the drop down and choose it. No internet needed at this point but you have to check the "I am an expert" box to get it. Gentlemen, it worked. Cottonwood, my thanks for the hitman direction in the end it found 113 threats and deleted every one. I am now dumping some sites from his programs, Sweetpacks, ugh, and such. Vista not sure what the whole farbar thing was about but thanks for trying. Looks like I can take by friends computer back to him working. Obliged to all.
