Hey everyone. I'm having a huge problem with my computer (which operates on vista) and am tearing my hair out over it.

First of all, a nasty virus called 'security tools' infected my computer and i couldn't get rid of it because it wouldn't enable me to run real anti-virus programs such as anti-malwarebytes which has worked for me in the past. I do have solutions for getting rid of this virus now but i can't even boot up my computer properly.

This morning when i booted up my laptop, startup repair tried to repair my computer but after not being able to fix the problem it decided to restart my computer again only to go back to startup repair, try to fix the problem and restart again. Now i can't seem to get past the startup repair screen as it always shuts down or restarts.

And trust me, i have tried everything it seems:
i tried to disable startup repair by opening up the command box and typing in bcdedit/set{default}recoveryenabled No but that doesn't work.

Restoring it to a previous date doesn't seem to work either neither does system restore

Even trying to start up my laptop in safe mode doesn't work.

I haven't tried complete recovery but i really don't want to lose all my data or files.

Any help would be really appreciated! Thank you
