Hi I came  in here due to a program i noticed running in the background of a PC ( LAPTOP) I agreed to save files on, first the keyboard is malfunctioning and the computer gets way hot it is a Sony Vaio Home Windows 7 OA It has Dual Core 2.10ghz, 4 mgs ram Sp1 installed.
I noticed the Cpes launcher while in regular Windows. This laptop keyboard is malfunctioning so I have attached a USB keyboard. If anyone is availible, I would appreciate help before i try to network it to my pc to copy very important family photos.

What sort of help can we offer to you?

If you are trying to save photo's, you'll have to have a functional system and a place to save the photo's.

If unable to boot into Windows, you may be able to use a bootable disk - but you'll still need a place to save the photo's

 

The place to save the photo's can be an external USB Hard Drive, or even a flash drive (if there aren't that many photo's).

 

If you can't do this, then you may be able to slave the computer's hard drive to another computer and save the photo's there.

Good luck!

usasma,

I can boot into Laptop under Windows 7 safe mode and normal boot, however the keyboard on the laptop isnt working right and therefore I have attached an external usb keyboard. I am trying to drag and drop photos/videos to flash drive however the onboard keyboard is attempting to act as tho the shift key is stuck and i end up dragging all the folders of photos which is too much for one flash drive to hold so it becomes unsuccessful. There are times like now when its ok. and i have found more than one virus so far, which makes me think this whole problem is virus related which makes file transfers not a good thing.i uninstalled the TWO!! yes i said two anti virus software programs and am currently running avg and cccleaner. I am also in safe mode and since the usb keyboard is working without a stuck shift ( without usb keyboard hooked up) it automatically refuses F8 command and sticky keys or toggle keys prompts come up.

I know one virus i found was a trojan and i figure it also effected the registry too, I would like to resolve this if anyone feels like helping me to do so before i have to wipe this system and reinstall.The mere fact that there could/are viruses would prevent the laptop owner from taking these drives to a public computer to print photos.
Thank you again, looking forward to the puzzle

We can help with the backup - but....

- if you want to backup everything before dealing with the virus' - then you'll need a larger device to handle the larger amount of data.  Also remember that the backup is likely to contain files that are infected - so a virus scan is essential before using the backup.

- to get help with the infections, I'd suggest posting over in the Am I Infected forum:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/
Please read the pinned topics at the top of the forum for instructions on how to post there.
