I got hit with a Trojan last night - thread here: Trojan horse: Backdoor.Generic12.GOG.dropper
and having done a GMER rootkit scan, I'm left with a black screen no matter what I do.
Even in safe mode, I get the black screen with "safe mode in the corners" and all I can do is use task manager. Am also getting a dialogue box that says "FFE.EXE has stopped working ..." - could be a virus offspring or something else.
Can no longer get on the web via any browser, so downloading fixes appears to be a challenge.
I don't have the original Vista discs so is there any way to fix the black screen or at least retrieve all my files (via some kind of cable or USB card)?
