Comodo Internet Security couldn't start properly one day. I uninstalled and restarted. Then reinstalled but failed. It asked me to restart. I was no longer able to boot into Windows after that.

When Windows started, it went directly into Startup Repair. After about 15 minutes, it stated it failed to repair with the following errors:

PROBLEM SIGNATURE
Problem Event Name StartupRepairOffline
Problem Signature 01 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 02 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 03 unknown
Problem Signature 04 292
Problem Signature 05 Autofailover
Problem Signature 06 1
Problem Signature 07 MissingOSLoader
OS Version 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1

I tried system restore but failed. The error message was as follows:
(not exact wording since using another language)
System restore failed while logging in to restore from the restore point.
An unspecified error occurred during system restore. (0x80070003)

I tried twice to boot into safe mode but failed.
I tried to press F8 rapidly or held down F8 key once computer started . None worked. They simply went straight to the "Startup Repair" loop.

What's up? How could I fix so it could boot again?
Using Windows 7. Thank you.

It looks like some system files are missing i think you should create Windows to go via Rufus or official windows tool and boot with usb and backup your files and do a fresh install of windows 7

I created a bootable USB drive using Rufus with the following settings:

  • Partition scheme: MBR.
  • Target System type: BIOS or UEFI-CSM.
  • File System: NTFS.
  • Cluster Size: select the 4096 bytes(Default).
Then I ran the startup repair from the USB drive but failed. The error was slightly different.

Problem Signature 05 ExternalMedia
Problem Signature 06 1
Problem Signature 07 NoOsInstalled
OS Version 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1

What else could I try to fix it?
I still want to fix if possible.

If not, what is the best way to backup all program data/settings and files from the laptop in this case? Thank you.

Sorry bad message up there , so my bet is linux , download ubuntu from official site and create bootable usb with rufus , then boot from usb and when ubuntu setup comes on there should be option to try ubuntu , then you basically can copy files onto different usb or external drive and backup them , if you want your program settings saved then dont forget to backup Documents folder and AppData folder and after installing fresh windows 7 just copy them back and it should work.
