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.
