Dan, I Give Up!
Sometimes time is of the essence and you just want the data off the drive and want to start anew. I can respect and understand that.
If your computer has become non-functioning beyond a simple repair, it may be easier to backup your data and reformat the drive. How do you do this?
If you're not so handy with computers, ask a friendly IT guy near you (such as a neighbor or co-worker) to read the bit below:
If you're handy with computers, you can pull your hard drive out of your computer and put it in another computer and access your files that way. If you have no way of putting the infected hard drive into the computer, (a laptop for example) then you can use this device.
This will allow you to hook your hard drive up to another computer via USB and move the files onto another working computer. WHEN MOVING THE FILES ONTO ANOTHER COMPUTER, PLEASE BE SURE THAT THE COMPUTER THAT WILL STORE THE FILES HAS AN UP-TO-DATE ANTIVIRUS SCANNER ON IT TO PREVENT REINFECTION.
You can go ahead and throw away the driver disc it comes with, as that's only for systems that are older than XP or Vista.
