Window unable to start after MBAM removed files

Recommended Posts

Hello @lyp16888 and  :welcome:

We are disappointed to read your system is having issues. Each computer is unique. Problems that seem "the same" most often are not.

The same is true for solutions. They most often need to be individualized.

It is less confusing for everyone if we adhere to the "one user per topic" sub-forum policy.

Please start a NEW, SEPARATE topic using this >>cjfj.png<< button.
Staffers, experts and helpers will be able to more easily provide both you, and the OP/Topic Starter, with individualized assistance to get you both up and running.

We would like to ask you to answer a few simple questions in your own new topic.

Thank you always for your patience and understanding. :)

  • Root Admin

Do you have access to another system running the same version of Windows and a large 4GB or larger USB thumb drive or external USB drive that you can use to try a repair?
DO NOT use this method or idea if the versions of Windows are not the same. ie.. do not use XP or Vista to fix a Windows 7 box or vice-verse

You should be able to use Robocopy to put back enough of the files to allow the system to boot again.

Assuming you have a USB drive on F: please create a folder called Windows in the root/top of the drive.
Then click on start and type in CMD.EXE and when it shows in the start menu right click over it and choose "Run as administrator" and type in the following and press the Enter key.

ROBOCOPY "C:\WINDOWS" "F:\Windows" /s /xo /xj *.exe *.dll *.sys /r:0 /w:0
Then start the affected computer up with the USB drive attached and issue the following command
This assumes that the USB drive is now D: from within the Recovery Console if not then adjust to the correct drive letter. You can run NOTEPAD and then try File Open to locate the drive, then close Notepad.
ROBOCOPY "D:\WINDOWS" "C:\Windows" /s /xo /xj *.exe *.dll *.sys /r:0 /w:0
Once completed try to restart the computer now in Normal Mode
Please let me know how that works out.
