it's fairly easy to do if you follow these steps precicely.

1). remove the HDD from your system
2). go to and get a trial version of ESS 4 and install it on a second machine.
3). after ESS is installed on the second machine, then hook up the drive that has the virus on it.
4). run an indepth scan on the drive that has the viri on it, (yeah, it will take some time) but when it gets done just have it delete all the bad stuff
5). unhook the drive that had the virus and put it back in your machine.
6). start up your machine, it should be very close to how it was before you were attaced but now defrag the drive.

good luck

Are any of the prompts giving you the name of the virus?

It would be helpful to know.

Also, do you have access to another computer, and to a USB flash drive?

As far as 'slaving' the drive..wish it were as simple as plugging the HDD into another PC and cleaning it from there.

A slave Scan can be a very dangerous procedure if any Registry changes are made without addressing malware loading points.

Another setback is that the Windows File Protection feature is not used when scanning a non-active partition.

There was a time when slaving was a fairly common procedure, but no longer. Slaving scans are out of date when dealing with the current malware.

You need to fix this virus problem using using tools that are designed to get rid of it.
