Windows will not load after running windows Defender offline

Q: Windows will not load after running windows Defender offline

After scanning with Microsoft Security Essentials, I was informed that an infection existed that required me to run Windows Defender Offline. 
The Windows Defender scan revealed a total of 30 items which needed to be cleaned.  The only name I recall was Alureon Trojan.  I ran Defender and recevied the message that the clean up was successful.
However, I am now unable to load windows.  It fails over and over.  I have tried to repair via start up repair and using the reformatting option via Dell Data Safe, and restoring to an earlier point.  None of these has been successful.  It will begin to load Windows then stop and tell me it can not load. 
 
I ran farbar/recover/scan tool and received the attached log:
 
I would appreciate any assistance.

Preferred Solution: Windows will not load after running windows Defender offline

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I ran MSE on this computer and it picked up the Trojan Alureon. It said it couldn't completely unistall it and I had to use Windows Defender Offline. I installed WDO on my USB and ran it. Now I can't get windows to load and Startup Repair can't fix the problem. I've run it a few times and I've tried System Restore.

A:I used Windows Defender Offline now Windows 7 Home Premuim won't load

Welcome to the forum,

Sorry to hear about your troubles, unfortunately this is an all too common occurrence after using WDO.

I'm requesting this be moved to the security section where our experts will see it sooner.

I recently ran windows defender on my pc to remove the alureon trojan. After running it my pc will not boot up in normal mode only in safe mode. It reaches the user profile page and will even go to where I enter my password then seems to time out and shut down and restart going to the windows did not shutdown properly page. I have tried system restore with no luck. I read in another forum that the trojan puts in a partition so that boot has to go through it first and to use [email protected] or liveboot to set my original patition to active. I tried [email protected] and don't really know which partition is what so I changed which one was active, then got a message that bootmng wasn't present, so I set it back. Don't know where to go from here.

A:windows won't boot after running windows defender offline

Hi pakoeikan,

my name is easyrider2. I have found that Windows Defender does not remove the Alureon trojan (please see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alureon)

I am not a security expert but I think it would be best to try to remove existing malware on your computer before running Windows Vista System Restore. If you have an access to another computer with CD/DVD recorder I would recommend downloading and burning the Kaspersky Rescue Disc (http://support.kaspersky.com/faq/?qid=208282173). Once downloaded and burned into the CD/DVD, you would need to enter BIOS on your non-running computer. To enter to the BIOS you need to press a specific key which is mentioned on the very first screen once you power the computer on). Usually it can be F2 or Del. Once in BIOS, you would need to change the booting sequence so the CD/DVD reader is before the hard drive. Save the settings and try to restart the computer. Once restarted, run the Kaspersky Rescue Disc and let us know if it detected/removed any malware.

Best of luck.

I've been working on a Dell Laptop with WIndows 7.  It had multiple infections.  I had to uninstall the existing AV software as it would not update (Avast).  I installed Windows Security Essentials and ran a scan.  It found multiple items and cleaned what it could but then said I needed to run Windows Defender Offline.  I booted from CD into Windows Defender Offline and ran the full scan.  It found and removed several.  I rebooted the computer and now it gives a BSOD every time.  I cannot boot into safe mode either.  I have attempted system restore and start up repair...both unsuccessful.
 
Any chance anyone has some expertise in this area?

I ran a Windows Defender Offline and it removed a Trojan Aleuron and two java viruses.  When I restarted my PC it started up fine but only stayed on for about 30 seconds and then does a restart.  When it restarts it asks me if I want to start in one of the Safe Modes or a regular start.  If I start in a regular start it repeats the shutdown over and over again.  If I start it in Safe Mode it will stay on.  I had to start it in Safe Mode with Network to use my internet.  What do I do to get my PC back running properly.  Thanks for any help I can get

Try to boot it into safe mode and open MSCONFIG go through the startup items and uncheck the unnessecary ones. then try to reboot the computer, and see if it will boot normally. If it boots to normal mode make sure you run a anti virus scan.

The computer is a Toshiba Satellite Laptop with XP. I download The Windows Defender Offline and created the boo-table CD with this computer. But when I boot with it, the only option the program gives me is to update it. Then when I click on the update button the bar fills to approx. 90% then says it encountered a problem with the connection.This can go on over and over.

Yet when I put in the very same CD into My Dell desktop it runs just fine. I'm not sure if this is the right place for this question. But I hope someone has some idea of what else I can try. I also put the program on a flash drive. but the Toshiba does not have an option to boot from the flash drive

Windows Defender is, in my opinion, a complete and utter waste of time and resources. I'm not sure what you're trying to fix or accomplish by running it, but I assure you there are significantly better alternatives.

I downloaded Windows Defender Offline to a USB memory stick, 16GB capacity. I have used it once successfully. Can I add other 'matters' to this memory stick, or should WDOffline be the only thing stored on the stick ?
If other files, etc are added to the same stick, when booting up the computer offline to use WDOffline, will the offline procedure still be able to be carried out, or will other files present prevent it ?

Hello Fred,

Yes, you could use the USB flash drive as usual as well without affecting Windows Defender Offline. Just don't delete any of the Windows Defender Offline files.

A:Cannot startup Windows 7 after using Windows Defender Offline

On my xp (hopefully your 7 is close enough) when the restart loop happened, it's because a setting in "startup & recovery" was set to "automatically restart" in the "system failure" section of the "startup & recovery" pane. How I get to it is: RIGHT click "my computer" → "properties" → in the "startup & recovery" section "settings" → UNCHECK "automatically restart" → "OK & APPLY" your way out. I hope this can help you at least get out of the restart loop even though it's xp stuff. good luck

I've been using both versions of this on a few machines in the shop the last couple weeks and it seems to be working well enough. I like the idea of a simple live-CD scanner. And bonus: it will even update itself before a scan. Documentation says to make a new one every couple weeks, seems like a good idea. However, it doesn't seem to catch a lot. For example, on Saturday I had a kid's Vista laptop that had been hammered. Win Defender Offline CD found about eight threats. Boot to safe mode, run rkill and MBAM finds....get this....920 threats. Reboot and SuperASW finds 200 more. CCleaner clears over 200 registry problems. Applied SP1 and SP2 and current browsers and it seems to run just fine. Amazing. I'll keep using the CDs and see what happens.

A:Windows Defender Offline Beta

No single product is 100% foolproof and can prevent, detect and remove all threats at any given time. Just because one anti-virus detected threats that another missed, does not mean its more effective. The security community is in a constant state of change as new infections appear and it takes time for them to be reported, samples collected, analyzed, and tested by anti-vendors. Security vendors use different scanning engines and different detection methods such as heuristic analysis or behavioral analysis which can account for discrepancies in scanning outcomes. Depending on how often the anti-virus database is updated can also account for differences in threat detections. Further, each vendor has its own definition of what constitutes malware and scanning your computer using different criteria will yield different results. The fact that each program has its own definition files means that some malware may be picked up by one that could be missed by another. Thus, a multi-layered defense using anti-spyware products (including an effective firewall) to supplement your anti-virus combined with common sense, safe computing and safe surfing habits provides the most complete protection.SuperASW finds 200 moreThe detections most likely included a lot of tracking cookies which are not a threat.CCleaner clears over 200 registry problemsWhile CCleaner is safe and useful for removing temporary and junk files, I do not recommend using the built-in registry cleaner unless you have a good understanding of the registry. In fact, I don't recommend using registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:? Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.? Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.? Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.? Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer becomes infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools.? The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results". Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, ... Read more

I realized I had an issue when Microsoft Security Essentials kept getting turned off. It suggested running Windows Defender Offline, after I ran a deep scan & cleaned them out, I couldn't start my machine. I went to F8 and hit "Last Known Good Configuration". My only option was "Windows XP Professional". I've never had XP on this machine. My question is...is my machine screwed and everything gone?...can anyone help me fix my machine?...And yes, I have a second hard drive as a back-up but it seemed to have messed that one up too....I would appreciate any help...

A previous thread mentioned that the offline tool wizard could incorporate new definitions onto the USB boot disk. However, when I created the disk the tool warned me that everything on the disk would be wiped off. How will the updating process avoid that warning?

In addition, I have a WinXp/32 and a Win8/64 computer. Do I need to create a separate USB boot stick for each computer?

Hi guys,

I downloaded the Windows defender offline tool for USB iso bootable file from Microsoft website and now I can use it from boot to scan the machine. When the machine (Windows 7 32-bit) boots by that tool, it wants me to update it before scanning the machine and that is the work I do. It becomes up-to-date and scans the system.
So far every thing is OK.

But after a few hours or a day if I want to scan another PC by that updated Windows defender offline tool, it again wants me to update it (!!) while a little time ago I have updated it!!
Apparently the updating files don't remain/store in that tool.

Is there a way to save the updating files into that tool for future uses?

A:How to have Windows defender offline tool always up-to-date?

There are always new definitions being added, that is why it keeps updating. You will just have to live with the updating or use out dated definitions.

Got the Alureon.a trojan/rootkit. Downloaded the Windows Defender Offline and ran it successfully, but now I can not get past the "Verifying DMI pool data....".

I've read countless posts about doing F8 or F10 to go into Advanced Boot Options, but neither of those respond. So I can not change the /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN.

Only things I can go into are the Boot Menu (F12) and BIOS Setup (Del). I've tried every possible combo of Alt+F10, Ctrl+F8, etc. to no avail. Hitting (ESC) to go into Safe Mode option does not work either. Nor vigorously tapping of F8 or F10.

Any suggestions on how to get to the Advanced Boot Menu?

Thank you in advance.

Just be sure to burn the ISO at a slow speed so as not to corrupt the CD!

If you have MSE Microsoft Security Essentials, then disable Windows Defender in Services. Type services.msc in the start search box, click on the icon, scroll down to Windows Defender, right click > choose properties, then set it to disabled.

Make sure your not using 'proxy' settings:
1) Under “Tools” in the browser tool bar select “Internet Options”.
2) In the “Internet Options” window that pops up, click the “Connections” tab at the top.
3) Click “LAN Settings” near the bottom of the “Connections” section.
4) If the “Proxy server” checkbox is marked with a check, click it to deselect/uncheck it.
5) Click “Ok” to close the “Local Area Network (LAN) Settings” window.
6) Click “Ok” to close the “Internet Options” window.
Reboot
Make sure "Proxy server" is still disabled under your LAN Settings.
Test whether Internet connectivity is restored.

If no crashes occur connecting to the Internet ...
Download DDS from one of these links:

Double click the dds icon to run the tool.
When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:DDS.txt

Windows Defender 64-bit has been downloaded three separate times and burned to DVD boot disks. Each time I have booted from the different DVDs, but each time Defender starts to boot then hangs on the screen where the Windows 7 four colored balls swirl around and form the Windows logo. However, with each boot attempt I don't see the balls, only a big light colored blue square where the balls would have been. Then the boot seems to stall right there and not continue.

Again, I have downloaded the Windows Defender file 3 times and each one does the same thing. Any input on this issue as to if it is something I need to do to my PC to allow Defender to finish the boot?

Thanks.

A:Windows defender offline scan results problem

Couple of things that can adversely affect how Windows Defender Offline performs.
1. It's absolutely necessary that the bootable media is created on a malware-free computer. Otherwise, the malware could prevent your PC from downloading the program, burning it correctly to the bootable media, or prevent it from operating as intended.
2. Do not re-use a previously created a CD or DVD.

This tutorial gives some more info about creating and using the bootable WDO media.

Trying to clear my mom's computer of some viruses. She has Microsoft Security Essentials and it said I needed to download Windows Defender Offline.
 
I downloaded to my personal laptop and created the files on a brand new clean USB flash drive.
 
Went through the steps necessary through BIOS to move the USB drive to top of the Boot list.
When I put the USB in and restart the computer, it gives me a Disk Error message.
 
Any ideas what the issue could be?
Computer I'm trying to clean is a desktop Dell Dimension.

A:Disk error trying to boot with USB w/Windows Defender Offline

That means the usb disk was not properly made bootable or the computer is not able to boot from a usb disk.
Would you point me in the direction of the instructions you used so I have a better understanding of tools used?
I would point you toward the "Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs" for better help at specific removal of viruses but I understand if you would like to proceed in your own direction.  If you do decide to go to that forum please use this post first.

Hello sbuxman Mate have you actually removed these if not maybe try a scan with either Malwarebytes or SuperAntiSpyware? you may be able to clear those with those apps.

Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware download

SUPERAntiSpyware | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!

download the free versions and update scan and remove if they show up.

if you have got these already - sorry!

Hello this morning I learned a laptop we'd just recently bought used but we haven't used it at all yet has had the Trojan Alureon on it I did what MS Security Essentials asked me to do and made a bootable Windows Defender Offline disc and removed it Since then every attempt to boot the PC has it blue screen for a split second then restart The computer will not boot Windows Startup Repair says it cannot repair my computer automatically so I'm at a loss here I've read up on the web about some cases like this but I'm still a little lost on what to do I've read a little bit on this topic here on this very forum and I'm wondering if it's even possible to fix my laptop now Do I need to get FRST logs as far as I can tell I can't get to the desktop to run FRST what next Any help would be appreciated thanks Of course the thread name is the same as that guy's title because he put the problem into words perfectly so I figured Windows Defender won't and now with Offline boot Trojan PC Removed Alureon it'd be best to use a similar one

Hi there,my name is Marius and I will assist you with your malware related problems.Before we move on, please read the following points carefully. First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding. Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one. If you have any problems while following my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem. Do not run any other scans without instruction or add/remove software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me. Post all logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts. If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed. Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean. My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.  Which windows version is running? Also tell us, if it is 32- or 64bit.

I tried to run Windows Defender Offline bit on a friend's laptop using WDO installed on a USB stick but it refused to scan the Windows Definitions Defender To Manually Update Virus How Offline's disk because it insisted on getting Updates to its definitions before scanning So either the definitions on the USB stick were too old or How To Update Windows Defender Offline's Virus Definitions Manually not present at all or WDO couldn't find them I had not run WDO from that USB stick before But the laptop had just a Wi-Fi connection and WDO doesn't work over Wi-Fi I have successfully used the bit WDO USB stick on my own Desktop without such a problem probably because my Desktop is connected to the Internet via a LAN I checked another thread on this subject on SevenForums here Defender Offline on DVD failed because no internet connection I disagree with the statement by karlsnooks that WDO does not need an Internet connection This was confirmed here defender offline cannot update How To Update Windows Defender Offline's Virus Definitions Manually no internet connection - Microsoft Community However if someone knows how to manually download the virus definitions and copy them to a USB stick I would be very interested I suppose I could download and create another WDO ISO file on my hard drive and see what's in it try to identify the definitions and update the equivalent files on the USB stick but that would be very much trial and error If someone has actually done it please let me know

Hi there, first time posting here.
 
I recently helped my father-in-law remove a trojan named alureon using Windows Defender Offline. Immediately after it was removed, Windows 7 would blue screen on the OS load screen and crash.
 
Two questions:
 
1) Is the trojan successfully removed from the PC? Using Microsoft Security Essentials scan in Windows Defender Offline indicated a clean computer, but now it won't boot so I'm not sure.
 
2) How can I fix this issue and get it to boot up?
 
Thanks.

Hello!
 
I ran Windows Defender Offline on my firend's Windows XP machine and it removed a couple of viruses (including alureon.a) but when I tried to reboot all I get is a flashing cursor in the top left corner.
 
From what I have read it looks like it has created an issue in the MBR but I am not skilled, nor confident enough to fix it.
 
I have seen others with similar issues on here but I am afraid that their solutions were personalized enough that I was not able to duplicate the repairs suggested.
 
Thanks!

Is it safe to stop and disable that service?

Install the recommended Microsoft Security Essentials
which will turn off Defender.

Otherwise you can turn it off if you're satisfied with your AV.

Wondering what others feel about this. Is it beneficial, necessary, or just useless over kill to run both avg free, and windows defender at the same time? I usually run one of the other, or another app like avira. I have been running windows 7 for almost 2 months now with nothing but windows defender, and have had no issues. I installed avg, ran a scan, and it found nothing..

Any advice appreciated!!

Hey guys I have windows defender doing something in the background... its been eating up 12-18% of my Cpu.. it seems non-stop..

I'm not running a scan/scheduled and I've even completely "excluded" files and entire external drives from being scanned in the settings of Defender..

How can I find out what windows defender is doing??

I was under the impression that Win Defender is completely disabled when another AV (Norton in this case) is installed. And in fact it will not start when I search and try to run it. But I see in Task Scheduler that the scheduled scan "operation completed successfully" this morning. So is it running the scan or not? I know I can delete the task, just trying to understand if that needs to be done on all the Win 8 computers around here.

Thanks

Hi

I want to stop Windows defender from running on Vista Ultimate.

I have removed all the ticks in Windows Defender=>Tools=>Options, removed the tick in "System Config" and have disabled it in "Services".

However it continues to start in the System Tray and block programs when Vista boots.

If I go to Start=>All Programs=>Windows Defender I get a message that Windows Defender is turned off and gives me the option of turning it on.
Thanks in advance

My Windows Defender was running even a week ago!
Yesterday, I noticed a red cross on my action center.

It opens up the Windows Defender (at risk state), and after a minute, it shows this 0x800106ba error.

I tried several procedures from Microsoft Helpdesk, but none of it actually helped! Is anyone here who can help me to fix it!

A:Installed Windows Service Pack 3 Now Windows won't load past Windows Boot Load Screen

Hi sirdanceal0t,
I had a similar problem when Windows XP SP3 was released it was only designed for Intel processors, so if you have a AMD processor it will cause your system not to load, if you are running a AMD processor if i were you try and get back to the System Restore Point or if that fails reimage your pc and just before installing SP3 looks for the patch/fix for your processor model, then install SP3 and it should all be fine.

On the other hand if you have a Intel processor i woulldn't know what to advise.

I can setup offline folders on a Windows 2000 Pro client so the files are available when offline.

Is it possible to configure offline folders so that even when the computer is connected to the network the offline folder is still used.

What we want to acheive is for the notebook user to always use a local copy of their data but to also have an up to date copy on the server.

If i need to clarify anything or provide more details then please let me know.

Cheers

My hard drive failed and I replaced it with a refurbished one. The CD-ROM drive had previously malfunctioned and I replaced it with a used one. I purchased Windows 7 Professional for Refurb PCs and have not been able to install it. The CD-ROM clicks a few times and tries to start up then stops. Sometimes a blinking cursor appears in the upper left screen for awhile but then changes to "Operating System not Found." I tried installation from an old Atapi external CD-ROM (formerly known to be OK) but that won't spin up either and the OSNF message appears. I have not messed with the boot order because I thought booting would be attempted from whatever device contained the Win 7 disc. Does anyone have any ideas as to whether the program disc, CD-ROM(s), replaced hard drive or something else is involved. I have about $80 invested here. Thanks for your ideas! Frank 
 
 
 
 

A:Can't Load Windows 7 Prof on a Compaq laptop formerly running Vista

A number of things come to mind...
Have you at least checked the BIOS to see if the optical drive is listed first in the boot order?
You can test the Windows 7 disc on another computer to see if it boots up.  That way, you'd know for sure whether the disc boots.
Are you certain the optical drive is working?  You might want to download something like Puppy Linux and burn a disc on a known good computer then test the optical drive with it.
Let's say you get the disc or optical drive to work, do you know whether your computer is capable of running Windows 7?  Did you run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor?

I got hijacked by the old "We're scanning your computer and you have viruses" trick.  Stopped me from opening MSE as well as my free versions of Malwarebytes and Emisoft.  I went into safe mode, ran emisoft, and got told by Emisoft it couldn't remove the virus, to go their web site  etc. I downloaded Defender Offline and rebooted using it and it has removed the invader. 
 
My question is that Defender has an option of updating when it is opened.  Does this mean I do not have to reburn a cd/dvd every time I wish to use it??  My first copy is dated May 6, my second is June 6, and I think they show the same download size which leads me to think there is no difference between the two.  I do use the update feature, and it does check and down load when I do.

A:Defender Offline

My question is that Defender has an option of updating when it is opened.  Does this mean I do not have to reburn a cd/dvd every time I wish to use it??Because new threats appear daily, it's important to always have the most up-to-date definitions installed in Windows Defender Offline. Armed with definition files...Windows Defender OfflineI've used Windows Defender Offline before, can I re-use the CD or DVD that I created?If you created a CD or DVD you shouldn't reuse it; it contains definitions to help it detect malware. Definitions are updated frequently so the definition files on the CD or DVD will be out of date. If you created a USB flash drive, you can reuse it. Windows Defender Offline will update the definitions when you rerun the wizard.Windows Defender Offline: FAQs

I must confess that I always put WDO on to a usb stick. Furthermore, booting from USB is a function of the bios of the computer and not of Vista or Win 7. That's an usual computer that doesn't give that capability.

why don't you let us know the manufacturer and model and we'll see what we will see.

 FRST
Please download a NEW version of Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.
 Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system, download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Right-click FRST then click "Run as administrator"
When the tool opens, click Yes to disclaimer.
Press the Scan button.
When finished, it will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool was run from.
Please copy and paste the log in your next reply.
Note 2: The first time the tool is run it generates another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory the tool was run from). Please also paste that, along with the FRST.txt into your next reply.
