On the good PC: Install Autorun Eater v2.4. http://oldmcdonald.w...orun-eater-v24/
This will keep the infection from spreading back to the good PC via the USB drive.
In Command Prompt:
then hit Enter. If System Restore comes up, choose one from a week or two ago and see if that works.
In Command Prompt, type msconfig and hit Enter. If it comes up, under Startup uncheck everything APPLY, under Services, first Hide Microsoft Services then uncheck everything. Apply and reboot. See if you can get into normal mode now.
If not, back into Command Prompt and try regedit.exe and hit Enter. Do you get the registry editor?
If not try:
copy regedit.exe regedit.com
Do you get the registry Editor now?
If not try:
(The prompt should show that you are in c:\. You may already be there when it opens. Just want to make sure.)
If it finds a file called autorun.inf delete it as follows:
attrib -r -h -s autorun.inf
If it finds any files that end in .exe rename them as follows. Say it finds recycle.exe then:
attrib -r -h -s recycle.exe
ren recycle.exe recycle.bad
to run things from the pen drive you need to know what drive letter it gets when it gets plugged in. You can try D:
(does it find it? if so then)
(Is it the pen drive? If not try E: or F: ... Assuming you find it and you have OLT.exe on the drive:)
copy otl.exe c:\
If it runs then it will create a log in c:\OTL.txt and c:\extras.txt
copy c:\otl.txt d:\
copy c:\extras.txt d:\
You should now have the logs on your pen drive.
If it won't run then try downloading the otl.scr version from http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/OTL.scr
and try again. Modify the copy command to say:
copy otl.scr c:\
