BSOD / Wont boot after Rootkit removal

Unread postby Bascotie » November 18th, 2012, 10:34 pm

Hey guys,

After running malwarebytes, SAS, and the kaspersky boot disc (tdss and tdssfix would not work no matter what I tried), I was finally able to remove the rootkit but now the computer bsods. I read that I may be able to use this using FRST.exe but don't have any knowledge about the software and would like some help please :) Safe mode also does not boot BTW

Any method we use is fine. Currently I am running a chkdsk from the f8 "repair your computer" options on c: using /f and /r parameters.

Any ideas of where to go from here to get the computer booting again? Thanks!

SOLVED: to my surprise, it was as simple as running these commands using f8 to boot into "Repair your computer" and then opening a command prompt. I ran them exactly in this order all the way to bootrec /rebuildbcd (again).

Load the Command Prompt

>bcdedit /export C:\BCD_BU
>C:
>cd boot
>attrib bcd -s -h -r
>ren C:\boot\bcd bcd.old
>bootrec /rebuildbcd

Reboot.

The only other thing that you may have to do is to perform the following (also from the command prompt):

>bcdboot C:\windows
>bootrec /fixboot
>bootrec /fixmbr
>bootrec /rebuildbcd
