I have a buddy who has a old Dell 2350 desktop computer (WXP) that was all gummed up with viruses and spy-ware. It got to the point where he could not start this computer normally. He says it got the point where he could only surf the net in safe mode (which I didn't know you could). Then he said he was no longer able to even do that. He has now bought a new computer.

The problem is he has lot's of music on this old computer that he does not want to lose. He asked me if I could somehow retrieve it. What would be the easiest way to get this computer to start long enough to retrieve his music? Any ideas would be appreciated.

Another helpful tool that you can use over and over is a SATA/IDE to USB cable. I've found them to be very helpful and cheap. Here's a good, cheap one: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16812232002.
