My brother download a Microsoft Word Keygen and executed it on one of our computers and now it just constanly reboots. I tried going into safe mode but it loads the .sys files then reboots constantly. I took the infected hard drive and connected it to another computer and does the same thing so i ruled out hardware issues. I am able to read the files from the infected hard-drive from my uninfected computer so i scanned the keygen files my brother downloaded with malware-bytes and avg-antivirus and found nothing. Please help me ASAP. Thank You

Afraid you are out of luck...forum rules prohibit providing aid to users who are violating licensing practices of software developers.

"No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences."
