Thanks to you all for your interest in this problem, will try to clarify. The O/S is windows 7 Home Premium, installed on an HP G56 Notebook, this computer unfortunately doesn't offer the option to boot from USB.
On cold boot or reboot the computer goes through normal start up procedure culminating in the displaying of this page, as this link
"http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-united-kingdom-police-virus" , the computer from this point will not respond to any command.
Safe mode is not available at any stage of the boot, I have managed to access the bios and set the boot order to CD and by-pass the virus using Kaspersky recovery disc but am unable to connect to their server to update prior to scanning.
I will of course consider all suggestions, I have in the past, not with this particular virus used the method in message 3, "perhaps you could advise me, would it be possible to remove the hard drive, place it in a docking station and connect to my computer and run my antivirus virus program from there ?"
just wondering if that same method would work in this scenario ?
Again many thanks for interest.
