Re: Vista startup failure!!!
A scan in safe mode but no malware nor spyware using Avast AV and Windows
Found thiese files in the Avast AV chest:
a check of these files result no viruses all files.
Perhaps the 3 good files are moved to chest and changed with wrong malicious
If so I don't able to understand how they.... are able to do this modify to
OS that for default of Windows are very restricted.
For info: is possible to load Vista 32 as in safe mode using the Vista dvd
and also the Avast AV? In this way all the infected files on the hd remain
there on the hd and are not loaded in memory.
Please let me know how proceed.
Please note that Vista load perfectly only sometimes make these strange load
