Hey guys, I am a little new to this site and i don't mean to get off topic..but I am having trouble fixing a friends pc. It was infected with a virus and would allow access to any files of any sort. So, I put the harddrive on my PC and cleaned. Now that I have removed the virus, it will not let me load the drive on my friends computer and actually gives the bluescreen of death saying there is a hardware problem and it prevented windows from loading. Have any ideas or suggestions?

Put the drive back on your system (as a secondary drive)...run chkdsk /r on it.

Then try it in the friend's system.

Use the method outlined in 1 of http://www.hard-drive-help.com/chkdsk.html.

Back up her docs, files and music while ya got it in there if you haven't.

Some malware eats important system files and a cleaning as a secondary deletes them since they are not loaded into active memory.

You may have to end up doing a reinstall or a repair install.
