Hey guys. This is my first post on this fantastic website! I hope it is in the right place.
Anyway, I had a laptop infected with Trojan.ZeroAccess.B which, for an unrelated reason (I think), became unable to receive power or charge the battery. I now have a new laptop and an external hard drive enclosure, and I'd like to recover some of my old documents and, if possible, applications. Is there a way to do this without infecting my new computer? Since I can't boot from the old hard drive (driver issues and whatnot), I assume I can't go in there and remove the malware using the complicated procedure I have read about in other threads. I'm pretty computer illiterate though, so please bear with me.
Both computers are running Windows 7 64-bit. The new one is currently equipped with McAfee Antivirus Plus, which it came with.
I will really appreciate any time you folks can spare to pointing me in the right direction.
