install infected drive in another pc to fix
« on: August 24, 2010, 06:24:55 PM »
Hi i have a gateway 310s. It was infected with Win32.Generic!BT , Win32:Bamital-X , and VBS.ExeDropper-gen[Trj].

I have tried various software products to remove these files etc including spyware terminator, AVG, Avast etc.

I have tried safe mode that worked for a while but now doesn't . I've tried using chkdsk /p /r, fixmbr.

I would like to access the affected hard drives (2) to recover files before reformatting.

I'm thinking of putting the afflicted drives into another pc one at a time to get at the files I want to save. Is this possible without infecting another pc?

I'm open to ideas (aside from burning it in the yard or buying a mac)
Paul :(

This is not a good idea. The other pc will most likely become infected.

Please see your other post on the same subject.
