|To preface this, my mom's computer has a RAID 1 setup, which one of the drives is dead. It hadn't been causing a problem so I never bothered to replace the damaged drive. Whenever I tried to boot up into safe mode when it got the virus, it BSOD'd after loading MUP.sys.|
My mom's computer got a nasty virus - Internet Security 2010. I tried using all of the recommended removal methods such as running MBAM and doing it manually via regedit and deleting the core virus files. Neither worked. The virus kept coming back. Whenever I tried to boot into safe mode it BSOD'd. I decided I'd put it into my computer as a secondary drive and boot it into safe mode to run MBAM. I was able to run it fine. It found a bunch of threats which I deleted, then put it back into my mom's computer.
It gave me a RAID error saying that the drive was not a RAID drive (I'm guessing because I made changes to just the single drive). I pressed F1 to continue and it booted up into Windows. I try to log in, but as soon as my wallpaper appears it automatically logs me out. The BSOD recommended I run CHKDSK/F, so I tried to run CHKDSK from the recovery console via XP installation CD. It said "volume appears to contain one or more unrecoverable problems" whenever I tried to run chkdsk.
Right now, I'm just trying to figure out how to get my step-dad's important documents from his My Documents folder. Since his username is passworded, I cannot access the files by plugging the drive into my computer.
Yes I know we're dumb for not using any backup, but that's in the past now. Thanks for any help.
