Winload.exe is missing or corrupt

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc709667%28v=ws.10%29.aspx
Winload.exe is missing or corrupt - Recover DVD does not boot - Problem SOLVED!
How to use BCDEDIT in case of emergency:
After a power failure the Master Boot Record (MBR) got destroyed on my harddisk.
My entire harddisk appeared to be an unpartitioned area.
All partitions were gone!
***** Shock! *****
***** Panic! *****
As software developer I have a multi-boot system with several operating systems and a huge data partition.
I was not willing to install all this anew.
1.)
So I searched for a tool that may recover the MBR.
And I found "EaseUs Partition Recovery".
http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Back-Up-and-Recovery/EASEUS-Partition-Recovery.shtml
I put the corrupted disk into another computer.
This program scanned my disk and found all partitions within one minute.
It allowed me to enable the partitions and I saw that all data was still there.
And the best of all: This program did that great work for free!
2.)
After reinstalling the Boot Manager I noticed that the Windows XP partitions were still running fine while Windows Vista did not boot any more with a blackscreen:
#################################################
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.
File: \Windows\System32\winload.exe
Status: 0xc000000e
Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.
################################################
This error message is (as I'am sure now) a complete nonsense.
As usual in Microsoft products the error messages are wrong or at least misleading.
The file Winload.exe is neither missing nor corrupt!
People report in serveral blogs to get the same error after resizing the Windows partition with any third party tools that are not certified for Vista like old versions of Partition Magic, Acronis or Linux tools.
3.)
I read that many people in this case successfully booted with the Windows Vista DVD and went to the "Repair" option to repair Windows Vista.
But in my case this did not work.
This stupid DVD did not boot.
In the middle of the boot process it was hanging without any error message.
No chance at all.
It's from Microsoft, so we cannot expect too much.
Other people used
Bootrec /RebuildBCD
or
Bootrec /FixBoot
or
BcdEdit /xyz...
from the rescue console in the Vista boot DVD.
In my case: No hope because Microsoft does not offer any usefull Recover Console.
Searching for hours in blogs I found 99% bullshit. No solutions or misleading nonsense.
Only people reporting the same problem who at the end installed their Windows anew.
Many people don't understand what a restore point is.
It is COMPLETELY useless to have any restore point for this kind of problem.
One of the few interesting comments, that I found was this:
_________________
First,
most rescue disk and other programs will not boot correctly if you have more than 2 active partitions on the harddrive, have more than 4 partitions including and extended partition with several partitions in it.
Second,
Vista uses a different bootloader and thus creates a 'custom' mbr, which if modified by any standard mbr tool will cause vista not to boot. Also because of this some other CD's will not boot if they check the mbr.
Third,
as of yet there are no tools that will allow you to resize or check the NTFS drive of a vista machine. If any program other than vista checks or makes any changes (including XP rescue console) to the drive such as chkdsk this may hang vista.
Fourth,
many computers now include a recover partition most of the time this should be hidden, but sometimes may become active and cause problems booting.
So these things make it more difficult to work with. I would recommend you check out the articles on dual boot with vista, as these help you understand where your system is probably hanging at.
__________________
4.)
After googling for hours I could not find any solution.
So I investigated on my own.
Like a cracker using SysInternals Process Monitor I invesigated about what BcdEdit is doing on the harddisk.
**** And I found a solution which I will describe here: ****
I hope to receive some dollars from Microsoft giving support for their badly programmed products.
Microsoft pays 8,5 Billions dollars to buy Skype but they don't pay one dollar to give support to the millions that suffer from a blackscreen.
Why are there no Microsoft employees responding in social.technet.microsoft.com ?

The internet is full of people reporting this Winload.exe problem and no solution except the Windows Install DVD that does not work (at least in my case).
#################################
Here comes the solution that I found on my own:
5.)
Put the harddisk with the corrupt Vista into another computer that is running Windows (in my case Windows XP).
6.)
Mount the defective Vista partition on a drive (in my case F:\)
7.)
On the Vista partition the file F:\Boot\BCD is the one that needs to be repaired.
You can make a backup of this file now, but why should you backup a corrupt file ?
This file has no extension, the name is simply "BCD".
This file is a database that stores the information how to boot Windows and replaces the former Boot.ini.
This file is hidden. If you don't see it use a real file manager like TotalComander because Windows Exporer really sucks.
8.)
Open a command prompt (Cmd.exe)
9.)
Enter
F:\Windows\System32\bcdedit /store F:\Boot\BCD /enum
NOTE:
The parameter /store will access F:\Boot\BCD, otherwise it would access C:\Boot\BCD which does not exist on Windows XP!
What I saw was this:
Windows Boot Manager
--------------------
identifier {bootmgr}
device unknown
description Windows Boot Manager
locale en-US
inherit {globalsettings}
default {default}
resumeobject {1f20452f-f2af-11db-9299-adf714858873}
displayorder {default}
toolsdisplayorder {memdiag}
timeout 30
Windows Boot Loader
-------------------
identifier {default}
device unknown
path \Windows\system32\winload.exe
description Microsoft Windows Vista
locale en-US
inherit {bootloadersettings}
osdevice unknown
systemroot \Windows
resumeobject {1f20452f-f2af-11db-9299-adf714858873}
nx OptIn
This is the content of a corrupt BCD file.
I have no idea what destroyed this file in my case.
But you see that there are three lines with "unknown".
This is the cause why Vista does not boot anymore.
The Windload.exe is NOT corrupt or missing.
The corrupt file is the BCD file, but the programmers at Microsoft are not able to show helpfull error messages.
10.)
Now enter the following 3 commands:
F:\Windows\System32\bcdedit /store F:\Boot\BCD /set {bootmgr} device boot
The operation completed successfully.
F:\Windows\System32\bcdedit /store F:\Boot\BCD /set {default} device boot
The operation completed successfully.
F:\Windows\System32\bcdedit /store F:\Boot\BCD /set {default} osdevice boot
The operation completed successfully.
11.)
To check the result enter again:
F:\Windows\System32\bcdedit /store F:\Boot\BCD /enum
Now it should look like this:
Windows Boot Manager
--------------------
identifier {bootmgr}
device boot
description Windows Boot Manager
locale en-US
inherit {globalsettings}
default {default}
resumeobject {1f20452f-f2af-11db-9299-adf714858873}
displayorder {default}
toolsdisplayorder {memdiag}
timeout 30
Windows Boot Loader
-------------------
identifier {default}
device boot
path \Windows\system32\winload.exe
description Microsoft Windows Vista
locale en-US
inherit {bootloadersettings}
osdevice boot
systemroot \Windows
resumeobject {1f20452f-f2af-11db-9299-adf714858873}
nx OptIn
You see that instead of "unknown" there is a "boot" now three times.
12.)
Now BcdEdit has fixed the BCD file and you are ready.
Yeahh!
13.)
This procedure should be added to the MSDN for all those who cannot boot with the misdesigned Boot DVD.
I don't know if this procedure also works for Windows 7.
But I think so, try it, it should work!
14.)
If you don't have a backup of your partitions I URGENTLY recommend that you install "Partition Backup" from Paragon Software.
http://www.paragon-software.com/home/br-free/index.html
It is extremely easy to use and can create an image of entire partitions that you must OBVIOUSLY store on ANOTHER harddisk (e.g. an external USB disk or burn them on a Blue Ray).
It also makes a backup of the Master Boot Record.
"Partition Backup" is better than alternatives like CloneZilla, which is very awkward to use and only has a simple text user interface.
And in comparison with the competition from Acronis it is for free!
With the backups of your partitions and the Paragon Rescue DVD you will never again have to care about any Windows that does not boot.
You simply play back the image.
P.S.
If you are interested in more technical details about BCD and the Vista boot process, read this excellent article:

ntldr is missing error

http://pcsupport.about.com/od/findbyerrormessage/a/ntldrmissingxp.htm
  1. Restart the PC. The NTLDR error could be a fluke.
  2. Check your floppy and optical (CD/DVD/BD) drives for media and disconnect any external drives. Often times, the "NTLDR is Missing" error will appear if your PC is trying to boot to a non-bootable floppy disk, CD/DVD/BD, or external hard drive or flash drive.
    Note: If you find that this is the cause of your problem and it's happening a lot, you might want to consider changing the boot order in BIOS so the hard drive with Windows installed is listed first.
  3. Check the hard drive and other drive settings in BIOS and ensure they are correct. The BIOS configuration tells the computer how to use a drive so incorrect settings can cause problems, including NTLDR errors.

    Note: There is usually an Auto setting for hard drive and optical drive configurations in BIOS which is usually a safe bet if you're not sure what to do.
  4. Restore the NTLDR and ntdetect.com files from the Windows XP CD. Restoring these two important system files from the original Windows XP CD may do the trick:
    Enter Windows XP Recovery Console
    .
    When you reach the command prompt (detailed in Step 6 in the link above), type the following two commands, pressing Enter after each one:
    copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\
    copy d:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\
    
    In the command listed above, d represents the drive letter assigned to the optical drive that your Windows XP CD is currently in. While this is most often d, your system could assign a different letter. Also, c:\ represents the root folder of the partition that Windows XP is currently installed on. Again, this is most often the case but your system could be different.
    If you're prompted to overwrite either of the two files, press Y.
    Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.
    Assuming that missing or corrupt versions of the NTLDR and/or Ntdetect.com files were your only issues, Windows XP should now start normally.
  5. Repair or replace the boot.ini file. This will prevent the NTLDR error if the cause of the problem is a boot.ini file that is not configured properly for your Windows XP installation:
    Enter Windows XP Recovery Console. The Recovery Console is an advanced diagnostic mode of Windows XP with special tools that will allow you to restore the boot.ini file.
    When you reach the command line (detailed in Step 6 in the link above), type the following command and then press Enter.
    bootcfg /rebuild

    The bootcfg utility will scan your hard drives for any Windows XP installations and then display the results. Follow the remaining steps to add your Windows XP installation to the boot.ini file.
    The first prompt asks Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All).
    Type Y in response to this question and press Enter.
    The next prompt asks you to Enter Load Identifier:.
    This is the name of the operating system. For example, type Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home Edition and press Enter.
    The final prompt asks you to Enter OS Load options:.
    Type /Fastdetect here and press Enter.
    Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.
    Assuming that a missing or corrupt boot.ini file was your only issue, Windows XP should now start normally.
    http://www.wikihow.com/Fix-Boot.Ini

    http://www.fermu.com/es/252
  6. Write a new partition boot sector to the Windows XP system partition. If the partition boot sector has become corrupt or isn't properly configured, you may receive the "NTLDR is Missing" error.
  7. Repair the Windows XP master boot record. NTLDR error messages may also appear if the master boot record is corrupt.
  8. Reseat all internal data and power cables. NTLDR error messages could be caused by loose or malfunctioning IDE cables.

    Try replacing the IDE cable cable if you suspect it might be faulty.
  9. Update your motherboard's BIOS. Occasionally, an outdated BIOS version can cause the "NTLDR is Missing" error.
  10. Perform a repair installation of Windows XP. This type of installation should replace any missing or corrupt files. Continue troubleshooting if this does not resolve the issue.
  11. Perform a clean installation of Windows XP. This type of installation will completely remove Windows XP from your PC and install it again from scratch. While this will almost certainly resolve any NTLDR errors, it is a time consuming process due to the fact that all of your data must be backed up and then later restored.

    If you can't gain access to your files to back them up, understand that you will lose them all if you continue with a clean installation of Windows XP.
  12. Replace the hard drive and then perform a new installation of Windows XP. If all else has failed, including the clean installation from the last step, you're most likely facing a hardware issue with your hard drive.

NTLDR Errors Apply To

This issue applies to the Windows XP operating system, including Windows XP Professional and Windows XP Home Edition.
Windows 8, Windows 7, and Windows Vista utilize BOOTMGR, not NTLDR.

Still Having NTLDR Issues?

See Get More Help for information about contacting me on social networks or via email, posting on tech support forums, and more. Be sure to let me know what steps, if any, you've already taken to fix the "NTLDR is missing" issue.
Other Errors That Appear During the Boot Process

stop error 0xC000000E after resuming of hibernation

Windows failed to start. A Recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your langugae settings, and then click next
3. Click "repair your computer."

Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible
http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/100857-boot-selection-failed-because-required-device-inaccessible.html
Computer after hibernation or stand by status becomes that error.
================
http://www.petri.co.il/forums/showthread.php?t=42099
you can try download EasyBCD (OR run probably bcdedit command from recovery dvd_win7_disk)
This program will boot your machine.
Then look at your item which boot Win!
My item had a record with *unknown* device or similar *Deleted partition* drive.
I suppose correctly there must be something like C:\.
So instead of delete that item I prefer added next and selected right drive for it.
It can be one of C:\,D:\,E:\,... with your Windows directory (where you have installed it).
More interesting is that it didnt have to be equal letter as it appears after boot in different computer, different hdd order...
-------------------------
Solution for 0xc000000e problem!!!
1. First Load Windows RE from Windows 7 or Server 2008 R2
2. Open Diskpart and make problematic partition Active
3. Open bcdedit and you should get something like this:
Windows Boot Loader
-------------------
identifier {default}
device unknown <===0xc000000e problem!
path \Windows\system32\winload.exe
description Windows Server 2008 R2
locale en-US

recoveryenabled Yes
osdevice unknown <===0xc000000e problem!
systemroot \Windows
resumeobject {e0025534-b36d-11de-aadd-ddc0b5870e2c}
nx OptOut
hypervisorlaunchtype Auto
4. Enter these commands:
bcdedit /set {Your-OS-Identifier} device partition=X:
bcdedit /set {Your-OS-Identifier} osdevice partition=X:
bcdedit
Where X: - drive letter with your problematic OS in Windows RE. You can find it by opening notepad and pressing save
5. Reboot
This problem I always getting after clone smaller drive to bigger with Acronis 2010.

--------------------------
Another way to fix it
Set up a new Windows 7 on a extra disc, copy out the BOOT directory from the SYSTEM DRIVE which actually has no DRIVE LETTER .
Then slave the Original HARDDRIVE which has the Error to another computer and Overwrite all the files in \Boot of the 200MB partition which is actually hidden by the OS and also has NO DRIVELETTER.
Use the diskmanager of Windows 7 from the new install to add a driveletter to the 200MB parition on the drive with the ERROR. The new install you dont need to activate or anything like that because we just use it as a toolt to repair the Original Install.
When finish don't forget to remove the Driveletter.
Return the Repaired HARDDRIVE/OS to it's Computer housing and then start the Computer using the Windows 7 Original DVD.
Input location and language and on the next part select REPAIR COMPUTER.
IT may take a few minutes (on my system it took about 1.5 minutes) and then it will tell you that it has a option to repair the OS
GO for it and click on Repair & restart and everything is as it has been.
BTW it isn't actually ACRONIS which causes the problems, it's more likely when a USB scanner or Extern Harddrive hasen't been removed correctly. I use about ten computers running win7 and even with Acronis which actually will not run on Win7 without applying a littel Tweak, it never has happen that it crashes on any Machine.
Before it has happen I used a SCANNER and I removed it without to disconnect the proper way. Ater this I got that error.
--------------------------
solution: (i can t explain why at the moment but it does fix my immediate problem!)
. go to CMOS, change the SATA Emulation opt from AHCI to IDE mode
. reboot PC
problem fixed!

Tutorial to to edit BCD code with bcdedit (which manage to solve my similar problem)
this is the picture of my bcdedit before repair

***actually all partition=D show unknown
and this is after repair
w.flickr.com/photos/58829069@N07/5876118801
what i did was
1. bcdedit /set {bootmgr} device partition=E:
2. bcdedit /set {default} device partition=E:
3. bcdedit /set {default} osdevice partition=E:
*you may have to change {default} to {current} depending on what your computer show at identifier
*you may have to change E: to your respective partition by regedit>import browse My Computer. Notice your primary partition which usually C: but in recovery environment is difference, mine is E:.
By the way i got this problem after I
1. delete Ubuntu volume in windows.
2. bootrec/fixboot and bootrec/fixmbr in the Windows Recovery(already installed)
So, I install back Ubuntu and Grub. Hope problem solved but fail.
I tried to install EASY BCDEDIT but got cancelled.
--------------------------
Another solution
1.Insert the installation disc.
2. Restart your computer.
3.Click the Start button , click the arrow next to the Lock button , and then click Restart.
If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.
NoteIf your computer is not configured to start from a CD or DVD, check the information that came with your computer. You may need to change your computer's BIOS settings.
4. Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
5. Click Repair your computer.
6. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
7. On the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair. Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem, and if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repair

How to Repair Windows 7 System Files with System File Checker 
A) To Run the SFC /SCANNOW Command at Boot
1. For how, see METHOD TWO at this link: SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot
B) To Run the SFC /SCANNOW Command in Windows 7
1. Open an "elevated command prompt" (right click -> Run as administrator), and do step 2 or 3 below for what type of scan you would like to run.
2. To Scan and Repair System Files
NOTE: Scans the integrity of all protected system files and repairs the system files if needed. Please see red WARNING box at the top of this tutorial.
A) In the elevated command prompt, type sfc /scannow and press Enter. (see screenshot below)
NOTE: This may take a little bit to finish.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker-command-1.jpg
B) Go to step 4.
3. To Only Verify if the System Files are Corrupted
NOTE: Scans and only verifies the integrity of all proteced system files only. This command will not change your system files as in the red WARNING box at the top of this tutorial.
A) In the elevated command prompt, type sfc /verifyonly and press Enter.
4. When the scan is complete, hopefully you will see all is ok like the screenshot below.
Note   Note
  • If SFC could not fix something, then run the command again to see if it may be able to the next time. Sometimes it may take running the sfc /scannow command 3 or more times to completely fix everything that it's able to.
  • If not, then you can attempt to run a System Restore using a restore point dated before the bad file occured to fix it. You may need to repeat doing a System Restore until you find a older restore point that may work.
  • If still not, then you can use the steps in the TIP box in the OPTION THREE section below to manually replace the files that SFC could not fix.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker-finished.jpg
5. When done, close the elevated command prompt.
C) How to See and Read Only the "SFC" Scan Results from the CBS.LOG
NOTE: When SFC runs, it logs it's actions into the C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. The steps in this option will show you how to see only the specific SFC entries with the [SR] tags in this CBS.log. This can be helpful to show you what files SFC could not fix automatically if you wanted to try and manually replace them.
1. Open an "elevated command prompt" (right click -> Run as administrator).
2. In the elevated command prompt, copy and paste the command below, and press Enter. (See screenshot below)
NOTE: This will place a sfcdetails.txt file on your desktop with only the SFC scan result details from the CBS.LOG in it.
Code:
findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log >"%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt"
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker-sfcdetails.jpg
3. Close the elevated command prompt.
4. Open the sfcdetails.txt file on your desktop to see the SFC scan details in the CBS.LOG.
5. You can safely delete the sfcdetails.txt file afterwards if you like.
Tip   Tip
If you need to replace a corrupted system file that SFC cannot fix, then this will show you how to by extracting a new copy directly from your Windows 7 installation DVD.

chkdsk switches

To Run Chkdsk from Command Prompt
NOTE: The chkdsk command can be used on a FAT32 or NTFS formatted disk.1. Open a elevated command prompt or a command prompt at startup.

2. In the command prompt, type in the following command below followed by one or more switches that you would like to use below with a space between each switch and press Enter.
NOTE: For example, the most common command to run chkdsk on your C: drive is: 
 chkdsk C: /F

chkdsk [drive letter]: [switches with space inbetween]
Switches that you can use in the command:
  • /F - Fixes errors on the disk. The disk must be locked. If chkdsk cannot lock the drive, a message appears that asks you if you want to check the drive the next time you restart the computer. For example, on the C: drive.
  • /V - Displays the name of each file in every directory as the disk is checked.
  • /R - Locates bad sectors and recovers readable information. The disk must be locked. /r includes the functionality of /f, with the additional analysis of physical disk errors.
  • /L:[size in KB] - Can only be used with a NTFS disk. Changes the chkdsk log file size to the number size in KB you type. If you omit the size parameter, typing /L by itself will display the current chkdsk log file size. For example, to have the default 65536 KB log file for the C: drive, you would type: chkdsk C: /F /L:65536
  • /X - Forces the volume to dismount first, if necessary. All open handles to the drive are invalidated. /x also includes the functionality of /f.
  • /I - Can only be used with a NTFS disk. Performs a less vigorous check of index entries, which reduces the amount of time required to run chkdsk.
  • /C - Can only be used with a NTFS disk. Does not check cycles within the folder structure, which reduces the amount of time required to run chkdsk.
  • /B - Can only be used with a NTFS disk. Clears the list of bad clusters on the volume and rescans all allocated and free clusters for errors. /b includes the functionality of /r. Use this parameter after imaging a volume to a new hard disk drive.

HOSTS Anti-PUPs/Adware

http://tecnicambalandia.blogspot.com/2013/06/claro-b1org-babylon-toolbars.html

EDIT : Un autre service de filtrage par blocage DNS est disponible – vous n’avez rien besoin d’installer.
Plus d’informations => http://www.malekal.com/2013/01/08/beta-malekal-blocage-dns/
Voici un nouvel outils HOSTS Anti-PUPs/Adwares – ce dernier va modifier votre fichier HOSTS afin de bloquer des adresses connues pour distribuer des PUPs/LPIs (Logiciels potentiellements indésirables) et des adwares.
Les adresses ajoutées sont disponibles à cette adresse : http://www.malekal.com/HOSTS_filtre/HOSTS.txt
Le fichier HOSTS n’est pas écrasé (dans le cas où vous avez déjà des adresses), les entrées seront ajoutées. Les quelques PUPs/LPIs et adwares visés par  HOSTS Anti-PUPs/Adwares :
Si vous souhaitez pouvoir installer ces programmes, n’installez pas HOSTS Anti-PUPs/Adware. Si vous désinfectez le PC de vos amis, entourages etc et que vous en avez marre de supprimer ces programmes - HOSTS Anti-PUPs/Adware est fait pour vous. N’hésitez donc pas à proposer le programme à vos amis afin de les protéger de ces programmes.

banniere_stoppublicites  Qu’apporte HOSTS Anti-PUPs/Adware ?
Bien souvent, vous avez déjà un fichier HOSTS Filtrant notamment avec SpyBot. Le problème de Spybot est qu’il est bien souvent sur-évalué, en réalité, à l’heure actuelle, ils ne protègent pas des menaces, ni des PUPs et Adwares. Personellement, je le fais désinstaller. Quelques exemples : Un faux site de téléchargement proposé en résultat commercial sur les moteurs de recherche. Ce dernier propose SweetIM et l’adware Boxore

etc..
Installation de HOSTS Anti-PUPs/Adwares Avant d’installer HOSTS AntiPUPs/Adwares, il est conseillé de désactiver le client DNS. Les fichiers HOSTS filtrants assez conséquents lorsque le service est actif (c’est le cas par défaut) peuvent occasionner des ralentissements. Pour désactiver le service :
  • Menu Démarrer
    • Pour Windows XP : cliquer sur exécuter  services.msc et OK.
    • Pour Windows Vista/Seven/8 : se positionner sur la barre de recherche en bas et tapez  services.msc et OK
  • Dans la liste, dans la colonne nom, chercher : Client DNS
  • Double-cliquer dessus et metter le type de démarrage sur manuel.
  • Redémarrer l’ordinateur
Vous pouvez ensuiter installer HOSTS AntiPUPs/Adware :

  • Le programme va créer un dossier dans %PROGRAMDIR/Hosts_Anti_Adwares_PUPs, un service HOSTS Anti-PUPs et une Clef Run.
  • Enfin un raccourci Desinstaller_HOSTS_Anti-PUPs est créer sur le bureau si vous souhaitez désinstaller HOSTS_Anti-PUPs/Adware
Le programme va donc être lancé à chaque démarrage le fichier  http://www.malekal.com/HOSTS_filtre/HOSTS.txt sera téléchargé pour mettre à jour le fichier HOSTS de filtrage.
Le programme va aussi checker la version, dans le cas où une nouvelle version est disponible, le programme va la télécharger et l’installer.
Si vous souhaitez désinstaller  HOSTS_Anti-PUPs/Adware, lancez le raccourci qui a été créé sur le bureau.
Pour vérifier si le fichier HOSTS a bien été mis en place, vous pouvez taper la commande ci-dessous :  Si tout va bien, vous devrirez avoir la liste des adresses bloquées comme dans la capture au début de ce billet.
HOSTS Anti-PUPs/Adwares et antivirus Du fait que le fichier HOSTS est un élément souvent viser par les infections, comme on peux bloquer des adresses malicieux, on peux aussi bloquer les adresses des éditeurs d’antivirus pour empécher les mises à jour des antivirus. Dès lors, certains antivirus embarquent des détections, c’est notamment le cas d’Antivir Premium (pas la version gratuite) et Microsoft Security Essential. Vous devez alors accepter la modification du fichier HOSTS en cliquant sur Appliquer les actions :

AVG lui détecte carrement le programme, il empêche son installation :
This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 662x583px.

En espérant que ce programme vous sera utile.
EDIT Juillet 2012 : Version 0.3
Cette version ajoute une icône dans le systray afin de pouvoir mettre à jour le fichier HOSTS, le programme et/ou lancer AdwCleaner afin de scanner son PC et supprimer les adwares/PUPs.
 
Si vous aviez la version précédente, vous devez effectuer une désinstallation pour pouvoir installer cette nouvelle version :  
Télécharger HOSTS Anti-PUPs/Adware Avant de lancer l’installation assurez-vous que le service HOSTS Anti-PUPs a bien été supprimé :
  • Menu Démarrer / Executer et services.msc
  • Dans la liste, vérifiez que HOSTS Anti-PUPs/Adwares n’est pas présent.
  • S’il est encore là : Menu Démarrer / Tous les programmes
    • Sur Windows XP : cliquez sur invite de commandes
    • Sur Windows Vista/Seven : faites un clic droit / executer en tant qu’administrateur sur invite de commandes
  • Dans l’invite de commandes, tapez SC delete « HOSTS Anti-PUPs »
This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 673x174px.

Historique
  • 14 Novembre 2012 :
Afin d’augmenter la protection les referer de malwaredb.malekal.com - les referer sont automatiquement ajoutés dans le fichier HOSTS. Notamment dans ces referer se trouvent des malvertising qui conduisent à des exploits sur site WEB pour charger en général des ransomwares fake police. Bien que ce ne soit pas la fonction première de ce fichier HOSTS, ça coûte rien en temps d’ajouter ces sites et ça protège toujours un peu plus ! Ceci porte le nombre d’enrée à 496.
  • Début Juillet 2012 – Version 0.3 : se reporter à l’edition de ce billet plus bas.
  • 19 Juillet : sont ajoutés dans le fichier HOSTS des régies de publicités qui sont connus pour distribuer des malwares (malvertising)- ces dernières ne faisant rien pour améliorer les choses, au moins vous serez protégé. Les adresses en question :
    • hit.trafficholder.com
    • pu.plugrush.com
    • cs.adxpansion.com
    • newt7.adultadworld.com

How To Boot Your Android Phone or Tablet Into Safe Mode

Welcome to Android: A Beginner’s Guide
http://www.howtogeek.com/130327/how-to-boot-your-android-phone-or-tablet-into-safe-mode/
android-safe-mode-prompt
On your Windows PC, you can boot into safe mode to load Windows without any third-party software. You can do the same on Android with Android’s safe mode. In safe mode, Android won’t load any third-party applications.
This allows you to troubleshoot your device – if you’re experiencing crashes, freezes, or battery life issues, you can boot into safe mode and see if the issues still happen there. From safe mode, you can uninstall misbehaving third-party apps.

Booting Into Safe Mode

To reboot into safe mode on Android 4.1 or later, long-press the power button until the power options menu appears.

Long-press the Power Off option and you’ll be asked if you want to reboot your Android device into safe mode. Tap the OK button.

On older versions of Android, long-press the power button and then tap Power Off to turn off your device. Turn on the phone or tablet by long-pressing the power button again. Release the power button and, when you see a logo appear during boot-up, hold down both the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons. Continue holding the two buttons until the device boots up with a Safe mode indicator at the bottom-left corner of its screen.

Troubleshooting in Safe Mode

While in safe mode, the words “Safe Mode” will appear at the bottom of your screen.

In safe mode, you’ll only have access to the apps that came with your device. Apps you’ve installed will be disabled and any widgets you’ve added to your home screens won’t be present. Try using your device normally after booting into safe mode. If your issue – freezing, rebooting, crashes, battery life issues, or bad performance – is solved in Safe Mode, the problem is with a third-party app you’ve installed.
While apps are disabled, you can uninstall them normally. Open the Settings screen, tap Apps, locate the app you want to install, tap it, and tap the Uninstall button. if you’ve installed any apps recently, you should probably try uninstalling those apps first.

After uninstalling the apps, you can try installing them one at a time to identify which app is causing you problems.
If you’re experiencing major problems with your device, you may want to skip all the troubleshooting and restore your device to its factory default settings. You’ll lose all the data on your device – so make sure you have everything backed up – and you’ll have to reinstall any apps you’ve installed. To do this, open the Settings screen, tap Backup & reset, tap Factory data reset, and follow the instructions on your screen.


To exit safe mode, restart your device normally. (Long-press the power button, select Power Off, and then long-press the power button again to turn it back on.) Your Android phone or tablet will boot and load third-party software as normal.
