Did you download the ISO file for the free AV of your choice, then browse to the file from the File link on ImgBurn's Burn Image File tab? Next burn the ISO to CD at 4x speed.

Place the CD in the tray, restart computer and either tap repeatedly the Boot Menu key given on first screen to choose CD drive, or see if it prompts you to Press Any Key to Boot CD - if not, set CD drive as first to boot in BIOS setup also listed on first boot screen.

Thanks. I didn't have the speed set to 4x the first time.
Works perfectly now.

If no infection is found, can you download and burn to CD free Partition Wizard and take a good camera snap of it's drive map? Post it back using paper clip in Reply box.

If not, follow the steps I gave in my first post to make sure either 100mb SysReserved partition (if you have it) or Win7 partition itself is marked Active, then run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times.

Are you using the DVD or Repair CD to do your repairs?

I suggest running another one to cross check. Any of the above would be good.

I'll run Kaspersky Rescue Disc. The first one I tried quit working during the scan. Can I remove the viruses using this?

Also, how long should the scan generally take? It seems like it's just going forever, and not finding anything...

antivir appeared to hang on me or at least slow down to a snail's pace.

I tried it myself last night. I'lll probably be testing a couple more in the next few hours.

I prefer to list products which I've actually used.
