Vista Corruption....?
A friend has just brought me his Vista Home Premium PC which is not booting into windows. It is not possible to get into the advanced boot menu (F8). Only options available are to start normally or to launch repair.

Launching repair runs the repair utility which always ends in a message saying that the repair could bot be completed.

I have been unable to find much on the web about this although I did find a couple of inconclusive threads that mentioned very similar scenarios.

This is reported to have happened after he downloaded an update via windows update. He also recently downloaded an iTunes update which failed on install. I do not know the chronology of these events.

There was a message just before the 'crash' which said that the PC was being shutdown because "too much had been loaded onto the PC"....(don't have the exact form of words).

There have been problems with virus updates not downloading successfully.

Also experiencing repeated disconnections from the internet about 5 minutes after connecting (or downloading the anti-virus updates- the notes are unclear) with a message saying that something has been set to disconnect the machine from the web.

My plan is to try to get the data off the drive (but I have to wait for an enclosure with a sata interface) then try a reinstallation on the same hard drive but any thoughts gratefully received.

I am thinking if not hard drive failure then this sounds like the effects of some malware intrusion.
