Solved Virus Locked Hard Disk

  • 0

Due to a virus I am unable to see any files on my harddisk either by Windows XP or DOS (accessed by pressing F8 on restart), though I know they are there. I have managed to get rid of the effects of the virus except that it is still blocking my hard disk. Is there any way of seeing these files and deleting those which were created on the day the virus struck?

  1. Kevin_Straw,

    Let’s give this a try…

    Please download RogueKiller…
    Save it to your Desktop.

    Now, close all open programs.

    For XP, simply double-click RogueKiller.exe

    When prompted, type 1 and hit Enter.

    An RKreport.txt should appear on your Desktop.

    Note: If the program is blocked, do not hesitate to try several times. If it really does not work (it could happen), rename it to >winlogon.exe<

    Please post the contents of the RKreport.txt in your reply.
