Is there a way I can save some documents/files on the infected computer? I'd be happy and fine if I'm able to backup/save those files then I'll just reformat.
During safe mode, I tried to move some files from my C:\ to F:\ drive but no dice, didn't work =/
Edit: so it takes roughly 15-20minutes or so to go from Safe Mode to the "Select User" screen then another 10-min after to load the whole desktop and such
Edit2: Just tried to run rstrui.exe in Safe Mode(Not on Command Prompt) and it saids "System restore is not able to protect your computer. Please restart your computer, and then run System Restore again."
Edit3: I tried going into "Start Windows Normally" after like 15min's of waiting, it finally worked. I still can't drag any files from C to F drive or vice-versa and it seems to be just like safe-mode but without the huge icons. I tried to run MSN and other programs but this error keeps popping up: "Bad Image; The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\WSOCK32.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette"
It seems like I can't open any images either, double click -> nothing happens, nothing loads. I can't open IE/FF nor see if I'm currently connected to the internet; I tried to open Command Prompt and typed in netstat -n and tried to ping but this error pops up "Bad Image; The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\System32\wship6.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette.
Paint works; notepad also works, not sure what else works though..
Edit4: Weird...I opened a zip file containing some pictures and they loaded with Windows Picture and Fax Viewer PERFECTLY but I cannot open images by double clicking on them, HOWEVER I CAN right clicked and go to "Open with -> Windows Pictures and Fax Viewer" and WA LA it works! BUT I cannot drag + drop or just drop in general. I can't even Right click -> Copy and paste..
