    This applies to windows 7?
    It should be the same, but in Windows 7, you should be able to restore registry backups actually.

    Chkdsk reported there weren't any bad sectors and just restarted the pc. Oof, its still black screen /w cursor, I gave it 5 mins and it still doesn't run explorer. I went back in recovery mode and found out Shell's value is still cmd.exe /k start cmd.exe. I've followed Tairuki's steps properly but this virus is just too damn stubborn. If ya'll are out of ideas its alright, but if anyone is still up and running to help me fight this thing together you are welcome to stay.

    If you think you actually have a virus, you can download and run Emsisoft's Emergency Kit from a USB flash drive.

    Can I run it in recovery mode tho? I've tried running other programs in recovery mode and most of them don't run even windows defender.

    You can.

    EEK is not bootable, but it can be run by from the Windows Recovery Command prompt (X:).

    Use DISKPART > list volume to find the drive letter you want to scan, and the drive letter of the flash drive where EEK was saved.

    The EEK readme file has an example -

    - Switch to the Emsisoft Emergency Kit folder (e.g.: cd c:\eek\bin64\)

    - Run the scanner by typing: a2cmd.exe

    Next you will see a help page describing all available parameters. (attached above)

    The following parameter is an example of scanning drive c:\ with Memory and Traces (Registry) scan enabled, and archive support active.

    Detected Malware is moved to the default quarantine folder.

    a2cmd.exe /f="c:" /m /t /a /q="c:\eek\quarantine"

    Just gave you the steps above to run Emsisoft Emergency Kit from the X: Recovery Command prompt.

    Note that drive letters may be different, depending on what DISKPART says they are.

    Also Navy, yes I think I know what that means. When I was doing sfc /scannow scans I realized my C is D and my D is E idk why is that but I figured from doing "Dir (letter):"

    Quick question, can I run it from the removable disk or do I need to move it to another drive?

    See the instructions in post #45.

    The EEK readme file has an example -

    - Switch to the Emsisoft Emergency Kit folder (e.g.: cd c:\eek\bin64\)

    - Run the scanner by typing: a2cmd.exe


    As mentioned, the drive letters will likely not be the same.

    Once you get the appropriate letters from DISKPART, exit back to the X: prompt to continue.
