good day everyone! im a 19 year old noobie and i really need your help right here... im not sure if im in the right category but im hoping someone could help me here...

when i log in to my account in normal mode, everything is black (no wallpaper, not even a taskbar)... at first i thought my system hung or was still loading but when i pressed ctrl+shift+esc the task manager opened up... i suspected that explorer wasnt able to load during start up...when i checked the processes, explorer.exe was not present...

but if i try to run in safe mode or in "directory services restore mode" (im not sure if im right...but it shows safe mode in 1280x1024 resolution and has networking and audio devices functioning), explorer is functioning correctly... i can also open internet browsers in normal mode but when i go to computer>c:\ it says that c:\ in not accesible ... acces denied...

i tried browsing the net for similar problems and most sites and forums shows that users that hav similar problems with mine used HijackThis to report a log file of the system... the i tried downloading HijackThis 2.0 and run the analyze or scan then this is my log file:

i also ran an online scanner ( http://support.f-secure.com/enu/home/ols.shtml ) which found 2 malware threats... they were patch files for ESET Smart Security...

i also ran a-squared anti malware and found nothing

also, before all this happened, i remember installing acronis true image home and defragler... i acronis prompted me to restart my pc after installing but i chose not to...
im not sure but i think i remember running a system clean up through acronis then ran defragler but it failed to analyze my drive c:\... i tried it twice but it failed... then i restarted my pc...now this is what happened... now i uninstalled both programs thinking they could have caused the problem but nothing changed...

i also tried system restore through my vista installation disc but system cannot find any restore points... system restore is also not available in safe mode and i cant even access it in normal mode... i tried taskmngr>new task>browse>control panel>windows backup and restore then when i right click on it, it doesnt show anything on the right panel, but if i left click on it and choose explore, it says "the application has failed to start because the side-by-side configuration is incorrect. please see the application event log for more details."

i really need your help guys... this could be the best christmas gift for me...
happy holidays everyone!

Can you please do the following.

===============

Can you disable Windows Defender as it may interfere with the removal process. Please leave it disabled until your PC has been given the all clear.

  • Open Windows Defender
  • Click Tools
  • Click General Settings
  • Scroll down to Real Time Protection Options
  • Uncheck Turn on Real Time Protection (recommended)
  • After you uncheck this, click on the Save button
  • Close Windows Defender

===============

Scan with HijackThis and then place a check next to all the following, if present:


R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch =
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName =

Now, close all instances of Internet Explorer and any other windows you have open except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".

===============

Locate and delete the following item(s), if present. Make sure you are able to view system and hidden files/ folders:

folders...

C:\PROGRA~1\Crawler

-

Note that some of these file(s)/folder(s) may or may not be present. If present, and cannot be deleted because they're 'in use', try deleting them in Safe Mode by doing the following:

  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear.

Select the first option to run Windows in Safe Mode hit enter.

-

Reboot.

===============

After rebooting, rescan with hijackthis and post back a new log. Please let me know how your pc is now.

i cannot boot to my old OS anymore cause ive been following someone's steps/instructions in another category...can you please see the details and steps of what i have done?

http://www.daniweb.com/forums/thread102213.html

to summarize the steps jbennet told me to do which i already did:

1)jbennet told me to run a sfc /scannow which i already did before he asked me to...
when i did it the first time, it repaired my logon screen...instead of my customized logon screen, it rolled back to the default windows vista logon screen...
after reading jbennet's reply on my thread, i ran sfc /scannow the 2nd time and this time it didnt show me a logfile saying i succesfully finished the scan instead it quit the command prompt instantly...i also was instructed to run a scan disk for errors and i did made a schedule during next bootup...after restarting my pc, the scan disk never showed instead it skipped to the bootscreen...right after the boot screen loads, everything hangs, no logon screen...just black and the monitor's power button is blinking as if the vga connector have been unplugged from the video card...i also get a BSOD sometimes...it says:

"problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

if this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. if this screen apperars again, follow these steps:

check to be sure you have adequate disk space. if a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for friver updates. try changing video adapters.

check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. if you need to use safe mode to disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advanced start up options, and then select safe mode.

technical information

*** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xc0000005, 0x8bb95123, 0x895379f4, 0x895376f0)"

2)this time, i cannot run in safemode...the load stops at \windows\system32\drivers\crcdisk.sys... someone even suggested running the vista startup repair included in the vista installer disc.... i've tried that also, at first, it (vista startup repair) performed a scan disk for error and it took a while to finish... unfortunately, after restart, nothing's changed... i also tried the system restore from the installation disk which i did in the first place but system restore cannot find any restore points...

3)out of curiosity, i tried copying the .sys and .mui files from my 2nd OS and overwritten the .sys and .mui files on my original OS (specifically the logon,winload,winresume etc)...
i dont think if i improved the situation or not but since i did that, i can no longer see the BSOD when choosing my original OS...after the bootscreen loads, i get traped between the bootscreen and the logon screen...i mean, i cant see the logon screen, i only see a black screen and a mouse cursor...

4)after numbers of trials and errors, the 2nd OS now have been experiencing BSOD... it says memory dump blah blah... i cannot read all the information since the BSOD only displays in seconds then reboots... seeing that theres a memory problem, i performed a memory diagnostic test and it didnt scan any problems... i then pressed F8 on my 2nd OS then chose last known good config, my 2nd OS is now starting normally....

5)since my original OS is corrupted, i am accessing the internet throught my 2nd OS... this time, jbennet suggested uninstalling or deleting sptd.sys or the driver from daemon tools...i also did that but unfortunately,i cant check if its working or not since my original OS cannot be seen during boot up...it automatically starts my 2nd OS... it used to let me choose which OS to use...what did i do this time? jbennet says that i messed up the bootloader...how can i fix this? i cannot access my original OS... im only using a secondary OS right now... please help....

I'm afraid that's something that I have no knowledge of. I don't have Vista and don't know it's workings.
You would probably be best served by jbennet.
I am thinking a system repair but don't know how that works with Vista.
