Stop C0000135 Windows 7

STOP: C0000135 The program can't start because %hs is missing.
A customer's system was giving this stop code after my initial virus removal.  My first google searches came up with nothing but "LOL fresh install" the universal answer of weak minded techs.  Eventually I came across a blog post from Lexington computer repair blog.  Unfortunately the post did not relate to my issue, but it did help in that I knew there were other people out there repairing this issue.  My next search led me to a forum post on bleepingcomputer.com and that led me to their tool called Farbar Recovery Scan Tool.  After scanning with this tool and reviewing the log I found that the machine had the zeroaccess infection.  With fingers crossed I created the fixlist file to remove this and hit fix on the tool.  Success, the machine was able to boot; and I was able to continue my removal process.

Here is the fixlist file that I used. It probably won't fix everyone, but maybe it will help. The people on bleepingcomputer's forum are very knowledgeable and can help with specific issues.
