Today, I completely ruined my day by opening a virus from a download. At least that's what I think. The download came from usenet, and was posted by Yenc-pp-a&a, in case someone might be familiar with him/her.
At first I tried installing the programme yesterday, whilst I did not have an internet connection. This did not work. This morning I tried to again, whilst being online. About a minute after, my computer shut down and rebooted. Unfortunately, the reboot couldn't start windows. I can access a command prompt from the recovery on my x drive, but that's about it. Recovery itself is not available either.
Subsequently, I brought my computer to a support shop. They tried to access the hard disk, first of all to try to save my data. When that did not work, they tried to format the disk and reinstall windows. They were unsuccessful, as there is no way for them to access the disk. The disk itself is running, and when plugging it in to another computer, windows plays a sounds indicating something has just been connected.
Is there anyone that knows what to do?
I can't access my pc, so the specs I can't give you. It's an HP Pavilion DV6-3137ED XD492EA, with windows 7 home premium
