Sorry to post a bit of a stupid one but here goes. Daughter at University in UK Me in Channel Islands. Alienware Area 57 running xp Her laptop got infected with Antimalware doctor. She installed trial of NIS2010 which ran for a couple of hours, she was not sure if it had got stuck so switched off. Result no desktop icons or start. She pulled the HD, posted to me and replaced with the cloned one I had prepared. I have ran NIS 2010 on the drive and removed 15 trojans malware etc. My question is if she plugs it back in as it has her work and game saves which I can access on the drive will her windows have been corrupted and she still have a broken desktop. Also can NIS remove Antimalware doctor as that name did not show up as one of the problems. Thanks folks I know that you are busy.
