Ran Malwarebytes. PC won't re-boot.

Recommended Posts

I've been using Malwarebytes for several months, and it has been great. Today, I ran a weekly scan. Nothing had been detected in a while, however, today there were three malicious files found. One was a trojan. I don't recall what the other two were, but they were registry files, while the trojan was located somewhere else. I selected "Remove Files," and it didn't alert me of a problem with deleting them. When I tried to re-boot to complete the deletion, I got a flash blue screen on the boot. I tried booting with Last Good Configuration, Safe Mode, and Safe Mode with CMD. No avail on any of these. Same blue screen issue. The blue screen flashes for only an instant, so I can't see what the problem is.

Do you think a Windows Repair should do the trick? I'm guessing two essential registry items were replaced with malicious files, MWB deleted them because they were malicious, and that's why I'm getting the blue screen. Any help would be appreciated.
