    Win7 Ultimate: Win7 Ultimate repair from DVD

    I caught malware omiga-search which I still couldn't remove neither with malwarebytes not ccleaner nor manually. While trying to remove it manually I deleted some important win 7 files and now my desktop doesn't load and the windows-key doesn't work.
    So I tried the startup-repair but it doesn't work either, I guess I have a little harddisk-problem, too.
    When I try to boot from DVD the same happens as when I try startup repair from harddisk: after loading windows files, the screen freezes, showing the words Starting Windows. Not even the 4 colored balls appear.
    I wonder what I must do to reinstall Windows from DVD, as it always automatically loads the windows files (and then freezes) and shows no other options, like reinstalling.

    Have a look at this to see if we have a harddrive error.

    Thank you! I would like to open start menu and run chkdsk, but my desktop is black and the windows key doesn't work. The only thing that works is the ctl-alt-del combination. Any idea how I can open the start menu? Any F keys don't work either.

    Try, Windows key and "R". This will open the Run dialog.

    Boot the DVD and follow the Repair my computer link to get to a Command Prompt. Run chkdsk from there.

    I could boot it from DVD this morning and ran chkdsk, alas, to no avail.
    It said the boot manager is damaged and can't be repaired. Gonna get a new harddisk on Monday.
    At least I'll get rid of that bloody Omiga malware easily that way. :P

    If you can boot into safe mode try:
    Remove Omiga Plus virus (Removal Guide)

    Then you might need to repair any system files
    Please follow the instructions in OPTION TWO of SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

    Attach the entire CBS.log to a post.

    If bootmgr till gives you problems, see:
    Bootmgr is missing - Fix

    Thanx a lot!
    Alas too late, meanwhile I had followed some other instructions and accidently formatted not only the partition I intended to but the whole disk. :P Seems my windows 7 dvd is not quite alright anymore either it stops in the middle of the new setup.
    So I gotta buy everything new.

    I haven't read from the beginning, but if you have a win7 license already, you don't need to buy it again.

    You can get the installation media from here: media refresh SP1 (U) are the most recent.
