The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)
A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

Hitmanpro on USB FLash drive help? - Post #7 by Edwin Engels (eengels)
The Kickstart flash drive always contains both the 32bit and 64bit versions of HitmanPro. During the boot process it is determined what type of WIndows is on the (infected) machine, and the proper version of HitmanPro is selected. This way, you can use the same Kickstart flash drive on different versions (32 / 64 bit / XP / Vista / Win7) of Windows.
So during creation of the flash drive it is not important to know what version of Windows is on the infected machine you are about to use the flash drive for.

Thanks, unfortunately that did not work either. I am able to start the process but the program does not recognize the flash drive. I've tried two so I'm worried it might be because I don't have admin rights to this computer.

Why not? Is it your computer or are you fixing it for someone else? If someone else, they should be able to give you admin rights.

My home computer is infected and I can't even get into safe mode. So, I'm using my work laptop to put files on flash drives or cd's.

That is not an option for me right now. Is there something anyone can do to help?

These are links to Anti-virus vendors that offer free LiveCD/Rescue CD utilities that are used to boot from in order to repair unbootable or damaged systems, rescue data, and scan the system for malware infections. Keep in mind there is no guarantee the repair will be successful and you may need to try more than one. Burn it as an image to a CD disk to get a bootable CD. All (except Avira) are in the ISO Image file format. Avira uses an EXE that has built-in CD burning capability.
If you are not sure how to burn an image, please read:
-- Note: In order to use a rescue disk, the boot order must be set to start from the CD-ROM drive. If the CD is not first in the boot order, the computer will attempt to start normally by booting from the hard drive. The boot order is a setting found in the computer’s BIOS which runs when it is first powered on. This setting controls the order that the BIOS uses to look for a boot device from which to load the operating system. The default will normally be A:, C:, CD-ROM. Different computers have different ways to enter the BIOS. If you're not sure how to do this, refer to:
