Startup repair bootloop in windows 10

Recommended Posts

Everytime I start windows, it launches start up repair and I cannot boot into Windows. I have tried many different things including safe mode and disabling early launch anti-malware. I am getting the error code 0x0000225. The file that is causing this is mbamswissarmy.sys and I have already ran the farbar recovery tool. The log is attached.

The 0x00000225 error is "Status not found".  It means that, for some reason, the system couldn't find what it was looking for (and that's why it crashed).

From looking at the FRST log (I'm not real familiar with it), I found that you have:
- MalwareBytes
- McAfee
- Norton
These, or a combination of these, could be causing your boot problems.

Are you able to boot to Safe Mode?  Here's how: http://www.digitalcitizen.life/4-ways-boot-safe-mode-windows-10

Then see if you can install all of them - then try to reboot.
Here's links for the manual uninstallers:
MalwareBytes:  MBAM Clean Tool
McAfee:  https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/mcafee-consumer-products-removal-tool/
Norton:  https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/norton-removal-tool/

In the future, please only use 1 antivirus and 1 firewall at a time.
You can use MalwareBytes with the 1 antivirus without problems.

Are you saying that when you attempt to boot into Safe Mode FROM Startup Repair - it only goes back into Startup Repair?

If so, the most likely thing here is a hardware problem (most likely the hard drive)
What is the make and model of your system - and what version of Windows did it come with?
Have you tried running Startup Repair from bootable media?

From that we can suggest diagnostics that may help to narrow down the problem.
