Blue screen of death after restarting following first cleanup

Recommended Posts

After restarting following my first malwarebytes scan the software asked me to restart and now i cant get back into windows. I have a blue screen. I read some of the suggestions on this forum but my computer wont even let me boot into safe mode off of the bios screen. It keeps going to a blue screen after the windows symbol and makes a sort of shut down noise. If i cant fix this im getting a mac and crying. I cant even post a log like was recommended by others on here

Okay that's fine.

Can you see what exactly the blue screen is saying?

I would like you to try a Repair Installation (which is not the same as formatting and reinstalling Windows) as outlined here:


If you have any questions about the procedure feel free to ask.

After the repair installation completes, see if Windows will load. If so, please open MBAM, click the Logs tab, and post the most recent log so we can find out what went wrong.

I'm afraid I have bad news.

Your logs reveal a backdoor trojan. A backdoor severely compromises system integrity.

A compromised system may allow illicit network connections, disabling of security software, modifying critical system files and collection and transmiission of personal identifiable information without your consent.

I recommend that you disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately, and only reconnect to download any tools that are required. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or it if it contains any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Though the Trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of Trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. If it were on my PC I would not hesitate for a moment to do so. Please read these for more information:

How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?

When Should I Format, How Should I Reinstall

Should you decide not to follow that advice, we will of course do our best to clean the computer of any infections that we can see but, as I already stated, we can in no way guarantee it to be trustworthy.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Let me know what you decide.
