Last night while browsing (a trusted site too...) my anti-virus went off "threat detected" and before I could read what it said, my computer reset! When Windows loaded again, my desktop appeared then all of a sudden, BSOD. I am using Windows Vista 64 Bit.
I have tried booting in Safe Mode, and I still get the BSOD. In the BSOD, before it resets I am able to see that it is a Stop Error in IASTOR.SYS
Sorry, this is the only information I know at the moment.
At my disposal I have another computer running the same OS, as well as multiple hard drive enclosures if I needed to remove the hard drive from the infected machine in order to work on it as a separate drive. Would a virus like this be able to duplicate it's self onto a new computer if I had the infected drive set up as an external drive?
I have had bad luck with this machine...
