Are you having a problem with the steps in the tutorial, raiden?

If not please proceed with the steps and report back results if you'd like customized help.

There's a step where you can rescue your files so you can also check for the .dmp file and if found post it back in our Crashes forum for analysis.

Nope I am not, I am on step 2 of your instructions , Just did a quick scan with windows defender offline, didn't find anything, so I am thinking of doing a full scan as well.

Stick with the steps and let us know how it goes. Once disinfected, what's most effective is Startup Repair run from the Win7 DVD (provided in step 6) or Repair CD. You may need to run it several times. It should automate System Restore but if not run it from the System Recovery Options working backward through all Restore Points. Then try SFC /SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot and all other steps.

Sorry, I meant I was on step 3, I just scanned the laptop will Windows Defender offline and it couldn't find anything , will a full scan be worth it?

Alright I will let you know what goes on. So I did a full system scan with Windows Defender offline and yet there was nothing detected, should I still follow your steps by downloading FREE Bootable AntiVirus Rescue CDs ,which one would you recommend as free bootable antivirus?


These Are the Antivirus I tried so far , and both of them didn't work.
