OK, sorry - I am very confused now as to which files, and where! I have TDSS, but not now using that - right?

You want me to format a flash drive and then copy the other file to it (link has expired), I format it on my laptop,using line above? Afraid I do not understand Q about drive letter

We don't need to restart the PC . Plug the USB drive in the PC and in the command prompt type the commands and press enter after each command

Code:
Diskpart
press ENTER
Code:
 list volume
press enter

Note   Note
take note of the letter for your USB flash drive
then type
Code:
 exit
and press Enter . It should say Leaving DiskPart… then type in the driver letter of the USB flash drive with a back slash " \ " and the name of the .exe file .
OK, sorry, got it. There are 5, mine is in H:

Formatting now, and have downloaded file to Mac.

So, file onto stick, and then bring back to laptop, right?

If you're sure your flash drive is H then run the command

[code]
format /FS:FAT32 H: quick
[/code]

Yes once you have the file onto the flash drive remove the drive and plug it back into the infected laptop . Inside the command prompt type in

H:\ and press enter . You should now be in H:\ _ type in frst64.exe

ADDED : from Cottonball prior post on page 4 or 5

Type h:\frst64.exe, and press: Enter


The tool starts and prepares to run. Follow the prompts.
Click Yes to the disclaimer.

Press: Scan

When done, the program saves the FRST.txt report, on the flash drive.
Click the Command Prompt window, and type exit, and press: Enter

Back at the System Recovery Options, press: Restart

When the computer boots back into Windows, please provide the FRST.txt in your reply.

By closing the current command window and it should bring you back to System Recovery Options: window and choose Command prompt . It should open to x:\windows\system32 . Type in " h:\frst64.exe " without the quotes
