I initially ran Norton Power Eraser to try and get rid of software malware that the regular Norton scans were not picking up. Every time I tried to update windows it would give me an error code FFFFFFE. It would also redirect me alot when clicking on links on the internet. So i looked it up and said it was usually caused by malicious software.To try and fix this I ran Norton Power Eraser. After it was done there were 2 things listed to fix. One was in gibberish and had a check box that said "remove" the other said something like "boot" (not to sure) and there was a box checked that said repair. Now I should have looked more into these things but, after numerous anti-virus scans I was geting restless and just clicked "fix it". It said that my computer needed to be restarted so I did, but after that it would not startup. it would say starting windows than the BSOD would flash for a split second and my computer would give me 2 options: to start normally(which dosent work) or to start up windows repair (which I did countless time but, it alwas says could not automatically fi this computer. I also tried to system restore to numerous past points of time which my cpu would not allow. HELP PLEASE!!!! im at a lost!
Solved! Go to Solution.

ANY other user other than the thread starter is not to use any instructions, scripts or proceedures, The work though in cleaning a system is individual and only for that system due to a number of factors.
Please do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
4. Cleanup (including system as a whole)
Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Do you have a Flash Drive??

okay, I tried downloading and saving the 64bit farbar recovery tool onto a flash drive but was unable because the computer that im using now is a 32 bit version.

the one that dosent boot is a 64 bit but the computer im using now is a 32 bit so when i try to download that farbar 64 bit onto the flash drive it wont allow me to because this computer is a 32 bit.

You just download the file and transfer it to the flash drive, you then plug the flash drive into the no booting 64bit system and follow the instructions
You don't try and run it on the 32 bit system.

You appear to have a missing file for Windows to but first is to try and get Windows to startup.
Download the script attached, needs to be the same file name as well (fixlist.txt), Copy across to flash drive
NOTE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on that particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system
Now please enter System Recovery Options again. Like previously
