You'd probably need to make a bootable CD or USB with it on there and then boot to it before windows starts. I'll download it and see what it wants you to do.

And if you have 79 infections see what happens when they're all taken care of, maybe a complete reinstall won't be necessary.

Did it detect an infection on this non-existent drive? Otherwise it could just be indicating something like an empty CD drive or card reader but it shouldn't have found anything there if that's the case
