Boot crash loop

Recommended Posts

  • 1 year later...

I have the same issue, tried del c: windows etc. from your posts, no joy, with windows 7

Could not find x:\windows\system32\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys  

How do  i boot from a usb or external drive if I change the boot sequence or how do I get access to these divices since windows wont load?

Worst case I see the c: drive and folders and want to save my user files

My command prompt:


Is that correct? Help me

windows\system32\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file


c:\bootrec /rebuildbcd

sucessfully scanned windows installations

total identified windows installations: 0

the operation completed successfully


Now what?

Not sure why you tried to rebuild your BCD, that's not needed in this scenario and may actually cause more issues.

As for your command, it looks like the syntax was typed incorrectly. Based on what little information we have so far, the following command should work:

del c:\windows\system32\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

Went to c:


Could not find c;windows\....


del c:\windows\system32\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

The system can not find the path specified.


O.K. Bizarre windows came up? Do I delete Malware bytes and then reload it?

Tell me what to do?

So Windows is working now? If so, you should be ok.

As for making a backup, you probably want to use some proper backup software. Your users folder should contain most of your relevant user data (and a lot of extra junk that doesn't need backed up), but that won't back up most of your program data, registry settings ,etc.

Windows is working now, thank you very much, your product is awesome and I've used the pro version in the past.  Do I need the "rootkit" app etc.

So should I delete malware bytes and re-download the free version so I'm clean and free?

I do have a 1 terabit external drive should I download it all?
