My windows 8.1 is not boot D:
I have access to recovery menu tho:cool:

Well I've been having trouble with my PC all week now and I found out I had a Trojan:mad:
So I start to remove it with windows defender. But half way though my PC turned off.
So I turned it on again. But this time is didn't get pass the login screen. The next time same thing.
This happened for a few moar times until...

My PC wouldn't budge pass the windows loading icon.
