can anyone help me correct my Asus Windows 7, please? Some ass put my boot drive in X: Not the C: or D: drives. all of my original files are in my C: drive as folders, but not the operating system. All of X: drives folders are empty....I don’t even know what to do.....I caught the husband on video camera with someone else & he just had to get someone to go all mid evil on my laptop.....ugh!!!!!
Wishing that was the case.
My Computers Name was: Paris, France & my own name as the owner, not the #’s you see.
They changed my C: Drive/ Windows(OS)..? into a Crive/Users/....../links folder... Im really lost on it. My Boot/CD there’s only one CD...no media...ugh!!
A couple of days ago, when I connected one of my external hard drives to my Windows 10/8.1 machine, the USB drive didn’t show up in My Computer or This PC.
you will be able to identify which partition has your windows on it by the size of it. the screenshots you posted have the size of that drive in it. be sure to select that one to set as active so it will find windows when it tries to boot. if this works and you are able to boot to windows, we'll work on the next step to remove whatever it was created by the malicious user who sabotaged it. it is likely he also installed malware or other nasties so need to look for and remove anything like that as well.
that was my first thought as well, but if start-up repair did not work, then not much else to do but move on to next attempt.
overall, it looks likely a fresh install might be needed, but trying a couple things first won't hurt anything. more than likely a back-up of data and fresh install on a fresh format will be needed sorry to say.
i'm worried about other nasties having been placed on the pc anyway and would personally do the fresh install anyway just to be safe.
