Windows 7: OS won't Boot, please help

26 Sep 2012   #1

Widows 7 Ultimate x64
OS won't Boot, please help


I recently tried to install a comicbook reader, and accidentally installed a .exe file of some sort that disappeared when I clicked on it. My computer then later prompted me for updates and a restart and ever since then it freezes when the Windows 7 logo comes up and restarts itself. I ran AVG rescue Cd and found and removed a trojan of which name I lost due to a power outage and to top it off my friend formatted the usb avg was on.

Since then I've been trying to run startup repair, but I receive this error message:

Problem event name: StartupRepairOffline
Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 03: unknown
Problem Signature 04: 21200508
Problem Signature 05: ExternalMedia
Problem Signature 06: 6
Problem Signature 07: BadPatch
OS Version: 6.1.7600.
Locale ID: 1033

The system restore point I had has somehow been deleted but after I reverted with it.
How can I fix this without reinstalling the OS?

Thank you for your help!
