If you can retrieve any data you want/need off it first I'd do so and reinstall the os on a newly created partition once the original one has been removed, either with the restore partition or the disk/disk set.

We have two PCs and one laptop up and running and this is the second time in a month that I've had to find solutions for fixing a virus infected computer. This latest virus I have is the google search results forwarding to ads with no ability to scan the infected computer (no anti-virus programs will open or run). This second one I have is worse than the first though, there's no tdsserv to be found (to disable in the device manager) and I cannot run any anti-virus scan or fix through a usb stick like I did the last time. Nothing works.
So here's what I want to do:
Connect the laptop (that's infected) to a healthy computer, and use an anti-virus program on the healthy computer to scan the hard drive of the laptop and fix the virus/trojan.
Since this is the second time in a short while I'm having to deal with this headache, I'm thinking of using an old computer, setting that up to be strictly a virus scan/fix station that I can hook up any problem computer to and run scans & fixes that way.
Is this possible? I'm not a very tech-talented person, so I hope this isn't too complicated?
