    Installing a new hard drive is proabably going to be faster and cheaper than trying to fix the old one. I always find a fresh install of windows gives a reasonably certain outcome compared to days spent trying to remove an ingrained virus with no certainty of success. A new hard drive will be cheaper than going to the repair shop.

    Recovering Data

    Before you plug in and install a new hard drive, unplug the PC and remove the old hard drive.

    When you have installed the brand new hard drive, added service packs 2 and 3, installed Free AVG antivirus and Free Microsoft Windows Defender, install all your usual programs, then install the FREE Microssoft SteadyState.

    You can't always prevent problems during a user session, but now you can undo the whole session. Learn how Windows SteadyState can return your computer and hard disk to its exact condition before the user touched it, simply by rebooting.

    Then, and only then, switch off and attach your OLD infected drive the the spare connector.

    When you reboot the old drive should appear as the D: drive. If not try changing the drive connectors around, or setting the jumper to "Slave" or adjusting your BIOS Boot settings (Hit F1, F2 or DEL on boot).

    You can now copy your files from the old drive (D:\). Only copy what you need from the old documents folder. Don't copy potentially infected files such as music or pictures from dodgy sources.
