I happened upon these forums via my still functioning laptop, and found a post by Surgeon General (My link) regarding the use of P.E. Builder, Runscanner & ISO Recorder to create a boot disc and scan my infected drive. My first attempt was not successful, as I apparently left some step out along the way.
However, though there were a few discrepancies between the actual screens I encountered, & the instructions, my second attempt seems to have successfully created two files... OTL.txt & Extras.txt. Both are attached below...
I have a Pentium dual core 2.6 with 4 gigs of ram, xp pro with SP3 (orig OEM disc was SP2), a high end video card, and multiple hard drives (2 fixed and several USB). I use this for video editing, and with many "in progress" projects on the drives (including the boot drive), I cannot afford to lose any data. Without it, I have no income making capabilities.
I'm not sure what the next step is, but I'm ready to learn... I'm no expert by any means, but not exactly a novice either. I have built several of my computers in the past, but had this one built for me.
I had sent a private message to Surgeon General regarding this issue, and was given some pointers on correctly running the scan, which I think I've now accomplished. So, I'm hoping to follow up from there...
Thanks in advance for all your help!
