Specs: Windows 7, athlonx2 64/4gig
x64 ultimate,
first time got stuck at windows load screen and would not move forward but was able to restore to a previous date. Next reboot stuck after post with BOOT MGR error. chkdsk is ok go to reboot and wants to fix startup issue, errors out. Try to run sfc /scannow and holds me back by a required restart, tried steps to force scan with no luck. correct partition is active as boot. no commands through recovery got me anywhere.

Did you try F8 to get to safe mode or last known good config?

yea i missed that, safemode gets stuck at classpnp.sys, last known config no go. So all it does is now is loop between start repair/start windows and nothing works.

Run a diagnostic on the hard drive and see if you have a software or hardware issue.

ran a full hdd scan with no bad sectors, ram is good, was tring to run malwarebytes, emisoft, combofix, a couple things when i was able to.

I believe a virus/trojan is the cause of all this but was not able to pinpoint it.

What kept flagging over and over was boot.ini on the desktop and it could not get rid of it. It would ask for a restart to completely remove it and i got the same thing.

I've been playing on a live distro to see what was available but still was not having any luck.

Any diagnostic your recommend?

If your files are backed up, try to access the recovery partition & put the machine back to day 1.

If they aren't backed up, remove the drive & use a HD enclosure to connect it to another PC & copy your files first.

Another idea might be to use the Live Linux CD to delete that boot.ini off the desktop & maybe delete whatever else doesn't belong on the drive. Do you know how to mount the windows drive using the Linux CD?
