I got this virus via MSN messenger
foto h t t p ://site.facebooky.net/viewimage.php?=email@domain.com


I have run many virus checkers with no results

registry cleaners too

and by mistake I think something went wrong:frowning::frowning::frowning::frowning::frowning:aa

When I open my laptop I get the windows boot manager screen

file:\boot\BCD
status:0xc000000f
info: an error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data.



I don't have my installation CD

I don't know what to do


my warranty has expired and I don't have the money:frowning:

I made a recovery CD
Download: Windows Vista x64 Recovery Disc The NeoSmart Files

didn't work!

please help

Hi number 18, welcome to NST.
Is your Vista 32bit or 64 ?
You have to use the correct version of the recovery disk.
Did you burn it following the instructions linked on the download page ?
We recommend using Imgburn, for which you can also acquire a free download.
In what way didn't it work ?

Doh....speed reading gets me again. Read about the issues he was having, missed the part where he said it could boot.

It can be done via Safe Mode. But it doesnt look like it can be booted there either. I need new glasses. That text is small for me. I totally missed that line. :tongueout:oint::scared:
