    Download Download gparted-live-0.11.0-7.iso (119.8 MB)

    Burn it to a CD:

    Now you will need to set the CD-Rom as first boot device if it isn't already (if you don't know how to do it, see HERE)
    Boot off of the newly created Gparted CD.

    You should be here:
    Press Enter.

    By default, "do not touch keymap" is highlighted. Leave this setting alone and just press ENTER:

    Choose your language and press ENTER. English is default [33]:

    Once again, at this prompt, press ENTER:

    You will now be taken to the main GUI screen below:
    According to your logs, the partition that you want to delete is the small partition of 1744 KB.
    Click on it to highlight it.
    Click the trash can icon to delete and then click Apply.

    You should now be here confirming your actions:

    Now you should be here:

    Is "boot" next to your OS drive?

    If "boot" is NOT next to your OS drive under "Flags", right-mouse click the OS drive while in Gparted and select Manage Flags.

    In the menu that pops up, place a checkmark in boot like the picture below:

    Now double-click the [​IMG] button.

    You should receive a small pop up like this:

    Choose reboot and then press OK.

    when i rebooted it brought me to a black screen that says something "Loading DMRK V8.00" and leaves me at a flashing C:\ >

    oh yeah, it wasnt in the instructions, but it also wasnt not. When I went to change the flag it was already clicked as "diag" so I unchecked that and clicked boot.

    I'll be slow with replying as I'm getting ready to watch 49ers game.

    Please Boot to the System Recovery Options
    If you have Windows 7 installation disc, just insert a DVD to the drive, restart computer and it should load automatically (option two presented in the article).
    It's possible also that your computer has a pre-installed recovery partition instead - in such a case use a method one (by pressing F8 before Windows starts loading)...
    NOTE. If none of the above apply you can create System Repair Disc (link in "Option two") and boot from it.

    On the System Recovery Options menu you will get the following options:

    • Startup Repair
    • System Restore
    • Windows Complete PC Restore
    • Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool
    • Command Prompt

    Choose Command Prompt
    You should see X:\SOURCES>...

    Press Enter.

    Press Enter.

    Let me know what exactly you see on your screen.

  13. sandberg85

    sandberg85 TS Rookie Topic Starter Posts: 54

    ok i couldnt find a recovery CD. so I reran the instructions from prior to see if I had misstepped. I booted from the CD and went to the partitions. I had change my "dellutility" partition to "boot" from "diag" before. This time I went and changed "dellutility" back to diag and changed the RECOVERY partition to "boot" maybe, that is my OS one and I had misread something because this time windows booted up no problem.

      • System Restore
      • Security Center
      • Windows Update
    • Press "Scan".

    After you complete the following, yes.

    1. Update your Java version here:

    Note 1: UNCHECK any pre-checked toolbar and/or software offered with the Java update. The pre-checked toolbars/software are not part of the Java update.

    Note 2: The Java Quick Starter (JQS.exe) adds a service to improve the initial startup time of Java applets and applications. If you don't want to run another extra service, go to Start > Control Panel > Java > Advanced > Miscellaneous and uncheck the box for Java Quick Starter. Click OK and restart your computer.

    2. Now, we need to remove old Java version and its remnants...

    Download JavaRa to your desktop and unzip it to its own folder
    • Run JavaRa.exe (Vista users! Right click on JavaRa.exe, click Run As Administrator), pick the language of your choice and click Select. Then click Remove Older Versions.
    • Accept any prompts.
    • Do NOT post JavaRa log.


    Your computer is clean [​IMG]

    1. We need to reset system restore to prevent your computer from being accidentally reinfected by using some old restore point(s). We'll create fresh, clean restore point, using following OTL script:

    Run OTL

    • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the following:

    • Then click the Run Fix button at the top
    • Let the program run unhindered, reboot the PC when it is done
    • Post resulting log.

    2. Now, we'll remove all tools, we used during our cleaning process

    Clean up with OTL:

    • Double-click OTL.exe to start the program.
    • Close all other programs apart from OTL as this step will require a reboot
    • On the OTL main screen, press the CLEANUP button
    • Say Yes to the prompt and then allow the program to reboot your computer.

    If you still have any tools or logs leftover on your computer you can go ahead and delete those off of your computer now.

    3. Make sure, Windows Updates are current.

    4. If any Trojan was listed among your infection(s), make sure, you change all of your on-line important passwords (bank account(s), secured web sites, etc.) immediately!

    5. Download, and install WOT (Web OF Trust): It'll warn you (in most cases) about dangerous web sites.

    6. Run Malwarebytes "Quick scan" once in a while to assure safety of your computer.

    7. Run Temporary File Cleaner (TFC) weekly.

    8. Download and install Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI): The Secunia PSI is a FREE security tool designed to detect vulnerable and out-dated programs and plug-ins which expose your PC to attacks. Run it weekly.

    9. (optional) If you want to keep all your programs up to date, download and install FileHippo Update Checker.
    The Update Checker will scan your computer for installed software, check the versions and then send this information to to see if there are any newer releases.

    10. (Windows XP only) Run defrag at your convenience.

    11. When installing\updating ANY program, make sure you always select "Custom " installation, so you can UN-check any possible "drive-by-install" (foistware), like toolbars etc., which may try to install along with the legitimate program. Do NOT click "Next" button without looking at any given page.

    12. Read How did I get infected?, With steps so it does not happen again!:

    13. Please, let me know, how your computer is doing.
