i have a hard drive that has not been used in 3 years due to a Multi-virus attack that made the OS unusable
i want to use a IDE to USB wire to try to recover some files off of it

my question is...
how do i connect a virus filled hard drive to my computer without geting infected by it?

NOTES:
the hard drive was from a computer with a Windows Me OS
my computer is runing on Windows XP Home SP2 and i have Norton SystemWorks installed
i do not know what viruses are on the hard drive




(sorry if this is the wrong place to post this but it was the closest thing to my problem i could find)

info on how to get bugs off a floppy disk/USB memory stick might help me find a way to fix my problem

anyone know?

the best thing i can think of is to make a non admin user and connect the drive then use norton

EDIT: i tryed my way and it worked...but use bitdefender's online scanner...norton missed some bugs
