    Exclamation Help!!!

    I was restarting my computer due to it freezing only to see a sreen saying "Pri Master Hard Disk:S.M.A.R.T. bad, backup and replace". I tried to load my OS but it just restarted my computer. I turned to google for help. It told me I had to turn off the "smart" setting, I did that but my OS would still not load. Can anyone help me!?!? I would prefer a solution that didn't cost any 'mulah' and that doesnt involve losing any data (suggest them anyway). I will be checking back through my PSP. Thanks!

    Dude you probably have the conflicker worm like me. Try running your computer in SafeMode, also refer to my guide for the Microsoft Software updates, average AV's won't detect the worm.

    just a way, which helped me today :
    (it was not caused by a virus, but i couldn't boot in safe mode too)

    insert recovery cd (windows cd)
    boot from cd
    press r
    (maybe you need to choose the right destination and type in the pw, i did not)
    now you get sth like C:\WINDOWS
    you could try: CHKDSK C:"
    and / or
    "fixboot" and ENTER, afterwards confirm with J (for me), maybe Y or w/e for you.
    now type EXIT and enter. afterwards it booted again here.
    good luck

    ^using CHROME now

    1. He cant boot into Safe Mode because he cant boot into his OS.
    2. I had this EXACT same problem. Re-installing windows was the only way.
    3. X-Rai, you cant restore it because its... "not there".
    4. Sorry about losing data.
