hi,
I have just been hit by the contraviro. I went online and found some directions to delete some files thru regedit. I did so.
and after I close the window, my laptop rebooted. and thereafter everything is disabled. copy and paste functions, my network card and sound card are the ones I can identify thus far. that have failed.so currently I am unabled to install any programs to cleanup or copy and paste programs from usb drives.
please help. 3 years of school work is on it. or if it is possible to access my files and copy them out to a external drive I am willing to do so.
thank you.

com is a laptop running on xp pro

yes i have read the instructions.
but
it says to have a anti-malware download to my desktop.
Currently the wireless card and port is down due to the attack.
also I cannot copy any programs from flashdrive.
So I guess I need to take things one step at a time.
Like being able to use my internet. how can I enable my card again.

Remove the hard drive...temporarily attach it to a different system as a secondary drive...and attempt the suggested resolutions.
