|Hi, I have a problem, this is the third time it happens, the first time I just did a wipe and load, and I made an image after that, then it happened again so I re-imaged my laptop, and now it's happening again. |
It started with windows being unresponsive after login, the hard drive led staying on while the actual drive doesn't do anything, then services would start failing. I would restart win7 and I wouldn't be able to boot into 7, I'd try to go into safe mode and it stop at classpnp.sys. after that the MBR would get corrupt.
I thought it was a driver issue, now it's happening again. I'm just at the hard drive phase and windows taking too long to boot.
I ran Gmer and found C:\windows\servicing\TrustedInstaller.exe(***hidden***) to be infected, I tried disabling it and Gmer crashed, any way I deleted the file.
I ran Hijackthis! and said "for some reason your system denied write access to the Host file", so I deleted it (I'm not sure if I screwed up there).
Now I ran Eset's servicesrepair.exe and at least it's responding but the HDD comes back from time to time.
