Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially and if I may remark, a very challenging and time consuming virus cleanup. Some that you could try:

  • determine what virus files/names are involved. Some would be appearing in "msconfig" startup;
  • some would not allowed to be deleted, try delete in Safe Mode;
  • in some instances, some services would have to be stopped using Ctrl-Alt-Del;
  • download, install and run RRT (remove restriction tool);
  • download, install and run Ad-Aware.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Glad that it is now working good again. Incidentally, due to my rank at the site, even a "Helpful" was detrimental to my ratings, they went down.

    Still to your concern, what model of the Zune media players and what seems to be wrong with it?

Hi :) I'm assuming that this is a laptop and not a tower? I'm assuming that as it sounds more like a hard drive fault than a trojan virus, or it may be that you have both :-(
If you're getting to run CHKDSK then you have access to the operating system i presume? Is it 'after' the chkdsk test that you now cannot get anything to run? CHKDSK may have moved an essential file or marked a sector as faulty that's preventing booting.
There's a few things that can be attempted, I'd suggest (if possible) . . . I am making several assumptions with these suggestions, hopefully one may help a little....
The laptop wont boot off the DVD - this may indicate a flat CMOS battery, so it now only wants to boot up from the hard drive first. Only about 10 viruses have ever been created that could stop a DVD drive from being used, and even then its just in Windows. If you can, check the BOOT ORDER in the BIOS settings.
Get a copy of a program called MiniTool Partition Wizard (free off the net - use a friends computer for that). It's 100% safe to use - have your friends computer create the special Boot CD version (requires 1 blank CD), and see if you can boot the laptop with that. If so, have it check Surface Test, and also Align the drive - that helps often for me.
You can also try the HIRENS Boot CD (again a free download), which will allow you to run all kinds of tests using a version of Windows that runs in memory - so it cannot be changed by viruses and can give you all kinds of control, including running other repairs and anti virus programs.
I hope something there help in some way.
(i dont think you can sell people on here lol, good try though - ain't they a pain? lol)

Dear friend, you phone works on a JAVA platform, not on some Symbian, Mac, Linux or Windows Platform.
It can never, NEVER be affected by any virus made before the doom day.
There is some other problem, but not a virus problem I bet.
