Good Day! I have the Windows Recovery Virus. Right after it hit, I had 7 Hard Drive Failure errors pop up and this note "The system has detected a problem with one or more installed IDE / SATA hard disks". Avira alerted me of blocking files. Must have been 10 or more. I read your thread http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic166248.html but unfortunately after I had shut the machine down Great thread btw. B4 I shut down the computer I ran Malwarebytes and found 4 infected but the Hard Drive Failure box would not let me handle the results on Malwarebytes and I didn't want to click on the error box to close it..not sure if that was the right thing to do or not. I couldn't get Avira to run. All the progams appeared to be gone and no desktop icons. I had to do a search to locate Malwarebytes on my computer. After I shutdown, I made a Avira Rescue disk and booted the machine up. It ran and found 10,000 plus detections, 0 Suspicious files and 90 Alerts. I saved the log and rebooted. I was not able to view the log. When asked how I want to boot, I selected normally. It starts to load Windows and then stop restarts again. When I attempt to log into Safe Mode, the files start to load and it stops and restarts. I'm stuck now. Toshiba laptop Media Center Addition XP Thanks for your help!
