Thanks for the help.  Went through the clean up and installed the recommended programs with no problems.

 

Still have one question.  I have a WD Passport external drive that I have been using for backups and to store some archives.  It was connected when Trojan activated.

 

How is the best way to make sure this drive is clean and usable?  I would rather not reformat if possible as there my be some archive files from the previous notebook but will if that is what is required.

 

Would connecting to drive using Ubuntu, do online scan of files, pull data files to dvd then fully scan dvd before accessing files in Win be a reasonable plan?

I think the online scan with ubuntu should be safe enough.  Then connect it up to windows and do another scan.
