Here's what I have to work with:
OS: Windows XP Pro, SP2
BIOS does not support USB
Just discovered that both DVD and CD-Rom Drives have issues. One drive doesn't spin up & won't recognize a Live Ubuntu CD and the other drive won't power up: lights don't blink, can't open drive, etc.
Floppy drive available
Antimalware Doctor popups take over display screen when I boot up in normal mode. Infections have disabled Avast! and I can't enable Avast! to resume scanning functions.
* I was able to boot into safe mode w/networking.
* I have an external hard drive that connects via USB. I would like to backup data to that drive, but I understand that while Windows backup utility works in safe mode, I won't be able to access USB devices.
Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.
