Thanks. Please do the following.

 

Retrieve Disk/Partition Info

1. Click your Start button and then Right-Click on Computer and select Manage
2. Select Storage -> Disk management.

3. On the bottom half of the screen can you tell me what each partition shows? If you know how to take a screen shot, you can do this as well and attach which will be helpful. As an example, a VM I have shows the following.

Disk 0

System Reserved

100 MB NTFS

Health (System, Active, Primary Partition)

 

(C:)

59.90 GB NTFS

Healthy (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition)

Hi Brian,

sorry for the late reply.  I decided to wipe the harddrive and re-format it.  I don't have any files or work that I will lose because I did an external harddrive back up that was removed physically from the machine before the virus hit.  Thanks for all your time.  Keep up the good fight !!

Cheers,

Adrian
