Forced chkdsk fails(reboots) after removal

Recommended Posts

Cleaning up my sisters machine from Packed.Hidden and FakeAlert.MN. I used process explorer to kill off the processes and be able to run Malwarebytes. Ran fine and removed just over 20 items, said 1 item required a reboot. I rebooted and now xp runs a chkdsk on boot which fails. I don't see an option to skip this scan.

I've tried safe mode, same results.

I booted to the recovery console and ran a chkdsk hoping that would clear it up, rebooted, same result.

Any suggestions?

Currently my computer will not boot into windows. I ran MBAM with updates yesterday, it removed many items. Now I get a forced chkdsk when I boot, but the computer reboots when I hit 16%, safe mode acts in the same way.

I have used a cd to boot to the recovery console and run a chkdsk, but even after that I still am forced to run the chkdsk when I boot.

Thanks for your help!

OK, here's what I have.

Internet does not work on this system now, so I could not get the updates.

I installed MBAM, ran it, log is attached.

I installed combofix, but could not install the recovery console. Log is attached

Ran hijack this, log is attached.

On the surface it appears to have fixed my problems, other than not getting an ip address from my network. But I am guessing a uninstall of the network card will take care of that.

Thanks for your help!

I can get online, but the download of the files for the F-Secure scan has failed 4 different times after slowly downloading for 10 minutes or so. I will keep trying, but here is the results of the SystemLook.
