A friend has given me his laptop, he has photos and music on it that he would like saving. you know what its like when a virus comes along, you need to beat it before you wipe it!! its a male thing!
anyway. i have had a look and instantly on boot you dont get to desktop, you need to run explorer. when the desktop appears the browser is hijacked and keeps opening up random things. Avast is disabled and wont enable. i just get error messages. When i goto other AV websites the browser redirects.
Finally when i run Rkill i get a blue screen of death.
I have been in to command prompt to activate the administrator account and i can now log in directly as admin. he says he thinks the USB ports are disabled but i have not been in to it that deeply yet.
Any initial thoughts?
