Can anyone tell me how to remove what looks like a rootkit infection from the recovery screen? What do I need to get this off my system? I've read alot but all the fixes seem to be based Vista starting normally, mine won't boot at all. I've used a recovery disk to get to the system repair screen, that's as far as I can go.
Vista 32bit rootkit infection(12 posts)
I was following a thread https://www.howtogeek.com/forum/topic/vista-harddrive-not-responding?replies=26 that was word-for-word my problem until after using LIST DISK, which failed. I followed another thread, forgot where it is, and ended up using LIS DIS. Its results returned a positive for a rootkit infection.
Ok, I've tried the disk and an "emergency recovery disk", both give me access into a multi-option repair screen but nothing works. Before getting to those options I am prompted to select my operating system from the list below: only there is nothing listed there. Any ideas?
If you can, post an image or a description of the list disk results you got. If it appears as blank then the discs you are using may not have to correct drivers for your sata controller to see the hard drives. Post our computer make model aswell. You can always choose to advance past the menu asking you to choose the operating system by selecting to use advanced tools and clicking in the blank area then next.
I didnt use the kaspersky as I don't have direct access to a burner (using my laptop). I will post specifics about my computer when I get home, currently sitting my ambulance waiting for someone to win this morning's Darwin award.
