Mine is directly off of \i386\

Is this the CD you got from the PC maker or one of the fancy microsoft ones?

I searched for "all or part of the file name", "asms", in the CD drive, and it came up with nothing.

"Snow about 2 days a winter."

Then that's not "Winter".

Mark Twain said there are two seasons in New England, "Winter and the Fourth of July".

It's beautiful here today. Mostly sunny, very dry air, about 70 degrees. And here I am stuck inside with my pal, "Zeroaccess Rootkit".

Got it! Now that I looked on the right disk. {Smacks forehead}

I'm copying it to the thumb drive, then I'll put that in the bad computer, and see if I can't point that little box to the correct spot,.

Oh. My. Goodness.

It's working. It liked it. The little screen went away and it's humming along and


AAAAARGH.


Now it's back looking for something else.


I could do the same thing for this one, and then it would want something else, right?

This thumb drive is too small I bet. I think its only 8gb, and I have other stuff on it.

How about.... I transfer some of the disk to my big honking external hard drive and see if Mr. Gates likes THAT?

Actually, I can fit all the folders from the CD onto the thumb drive, after deleting the latest two episodes of "Breaking Bad".

A CD only holds about 700 meg so it should fit on your USB drive. You just want the i386 folder
