    Vista Wont Boot - Jeez

    System Restore from RE says it is unsuccessful

    Done chkdsk /r on both partitions in RE

    There is a PQService sector which I tried it on, but is reported it was an unrecognized file format, although I am sure it said NTFS

    Repair says it cannot fix any problems (many times)

    Wont boot in Safe Mode

    SFC says it cannot run as there is a Repair Pending (deleted all Pending Files in Winsxs) - no good

    Taken out disk and done HDTune for bad sectors - none

    Checked it for viruses this way with Security Essentials - none

    Clueless

    I am sure I scanned it with the Kaspersky boot disk

    Now I am doubting myself....

    That's not really a nasty nasty in the virus / malware stakes is it?
