I put my friend's hard drive in my computer to
do some troubleshooting. He recently got a
virus(es) and I've been trying to get it removed.
First I booted from MY hard drive (not his) and
scanned his hard drive using some scanning
tools available under my original drive.
It removed a lot of problems and then I was at
least able to boot up his computer without it
restarting randomly. From here I initiated
another scan and certain malware was found
which I believe was in the form of pop ups
being caught by avira because they were
I wanted to restart and go into safe mode but I
was getting a blue screen so I tried, from the
a) chkdsk /f /p
d) A repair
e) after the repair i tried bootcfg /rebuild which
failed because it said it could not find the
necessary OS files or something similar.
Now I cannot boot into that hard drive at all
whether its 1)safe mode 2) normal mode 3)
last known good configuration
I'm running out of troubleshooting options here.
Any ideas guys? He may be ok with formatting
it but im not ok with not knowing how to fix it.
Also we may need to get in to get some
information from some software he has
installed before formatting.
Help please ^.^
