I open an attachment of a USPS Email Delivery Failure Notice, I was expecting a package that was late arriving and it GOT ME!
This virus started as a PC Check and quickly turned into a "Reboot" loop and shut down all access to "C" drive from safe mode, CD/DVD RW, 3.5 floppy, and hid "C" drive files.
How can I access this drive to remove infected files or do I format entire drive and lose wanted info on drive?
This same virus hit a second drive installed in same machine a month later, only it just Shut Down on its own and when I restarted it hours later it went into reboot loop instantly. I shut down machine and haven't tried to restart it, so I don't know if I can boot from XP CD or not. This virus seems to block more ways of access each time you reboot it.
I read one solution here but since I cannot load windows or a dos prompt it does me no good. Unless.......
Could I install a new drive, install XP +Ser Pack 1-3 and then make infected drive a slave and access it from new drive to disinfect drive or copy needed files and reformat drive?
Please any help would be great ........
Thank you .... Doc
