So I got some sort of nasty virus on Windows 7, but luckily I have my PC set up to dual-boot to Ubuntu as well. When I boot into Windows 7, I only have a screen for 2 seconds until a blue screen appears and shows a file dump. I tried booting in Safe Mode and running Malware, and it scanned and completed but when deleting the infected files, the blue screen and file dump happened again. I need Windows back. Is there any way I do a virus scan for Windows while in Ubuntu? Both OS are installed on the same HD. Thanks for the help!

Also, I'm running 64-bit Windows if that matters.

Are you able to boot into Safe Mode at this point?
