Friend's Sony Vaio w/Win7 Home ED.OA (MODEL: PCG-7192L/VGN-NW370F)
had been taken over by rogue malware and payed the ransom of 70 some dollars.
He says that (Compi-Services,Kiev) appears on his Receipt.
Now his HDD has failed (Click...Click...Click...and so on.)
Swopped out drive with new one and now I get "operating system not found"
when I attempt to install his back up recovery discs.
On attempt to access HDD with ERD Commander 2008 ( originally imaged for XP if that matters) I get
BSoD with 0x0...7b(0xF789EA98,0...34,0...0,0...0)
Someone please help!!

Well, if he's got nothing (data) to lose, I would suggest a CLEAN INSTALL using the Windows XP Install Disc.

A fresh start usually works best in such circumstances.
