I could potentially use my hard drive as an external to rip the data off it. Then go back to figuring out how to get my laptop back up and running.
That might work - but I hesitate to suggest anything. I'm not sure if any part of mounting the drive via Windows OS could make things worse.

I agree User plus it possibly could "infect" the other machine.

Personally I would try the Ubuntu approach.

Bit of a problem the file is 733mb where my CD which im trying to burn it on is only a 700mb disk.

Is it possible to download a smaller version of this?

Would using; http://www.pendrivelinux.com/univers...easy-as-1-2-3/ to create it on a USB stick work? I'm not sure if i can even boot from a USB since I've had recent issues doing.

It's installed but there is no try;

Install Ubuntu
Check disc for defects
test memory
boot from first hard disk
rescue a broken system

Those are my only options.

Suggestions?

I was downloading the same ISO while I posted that link.

I saw the same options - so I removed the post/link.

Sorry, we will need to wait on ICit2lol or others.

I'll pick up blank DVDs tomorrow and give it a shot. I'll re-post when I find something out or unless there are any other suggestions.

I really do appreciate you staying on top of this. Thanks a lot. Let's hope it works, will go to the store when they open. It's 3AM here :-) Nothing is open right now lol.

Hi Steve,

I'm know you're on a path with ICIT2lol - please follow one path at a time, don't let my post distract you.

It's difficult to follow two sets of instructions and provide good feedback - things get a bit screwy - so stick with ICIT2lol and the Ubuntu path. Come back to Kaspersky if you reach a dead end or if there is a consensus to take a different tact due to the risk of cross contamination (drive installed or ext. USB'd to another machine)

I'd like to see what you see with Kaspersky Rescue disk, a camera shot would be fine. I'd like to see the same or similar screens that Username provided to you as examples in post 12

Reference: Kaspersky Rescue Disk manual (PDF)

[edit] In the Kaspersky manual (near the end) there's a note about not seeing C: and suggests that it might be due to raid.
I suggested to Username that a "repair disc" boot using the repair option might help.
I came across a few utilities that will provide more information about the issue.
  • Farbar Listparts
    >> download the correct bitdepth (32 bit or 64 bit) for your machine
    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/listparts/
    ListParts is a small utility that will create a log that contains a listing of all the hard drive partitions on your computer, which can then be posted on the forum that you are receiving help. This tool is useful for diagnosing rootkit infections that create additional hidden partitions on your computer.
  • Old Timer-Listit
    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/otl/
    OTL, or OldTimer ListIt, is a tool that is used to diagnose a computer for a possible malware presence and to provide system diagnostics information that can by someone working on a computer. When run, OTL will scan your computer for a variety of information and then generate a report with a tremendous amount of information about your computer's hardware, programs, files, and running environment.
    >> Guide: http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/topic...1#entry1834531
Both can be placed on a flash drive and you should be able to run them in a Recovery boot. Please post the output from both utilities when you get the chance to run them.

Thanks,

Bill

Hi Slartybart, thank you for your advice. Here are the latest Kasper and Ubuntu images for all to see.

I am in the process of burning the latest ver of Ubuntu onto DVD and trying it that way.
Then will move on to Farbar Listparts and Old Timer-Listit. Will post images of all 3 results.

Thanks all

-Steve
