    Computer won't restart: "Root cause found: Boot critical file D:\CI.dll is corrupt."

    The virus was a rootkit. Downloaded and executed Kaperskys TDSSKiller, which removed it. Everything seems good now.

    Computer won't restart: "Root cause found: Boot critical file D:\CI.dll is corrupt."

    OK, for some reason I can now boot up the computer (no more Startup Repair loop), but I'm still getting the iastor.sys BSOD. I'm able to boot to Safe Mode and did a Hijack This before I got the BSOD again. Here's the logfile...anything look suspicious? Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.4...

    Can't re-install Windows 7 (Factory Install) after virus

    Can't re-install Windows 7 (Factory Install) after virus

    My Acer 7736Z-4809 laptop (pre-installed w/ Win7 Home Premium 64bit, so I don't have the Win7 CD) was recently hit with a virus. I constantly got the BSOD "iaStor.sys" and a black screen. Startup Repair at first couldn't complete repair, but when I tried again, it found no errors. Tried System...
