I'm working on a friends pc. It was loaded with trojans and spyware. Had his hard drive hooked to my computer, ran a full a/v scan using McAfee 2005, and spyware scan using AdAware. Both have most recent updates. Here's the problem: after hooking his hd back up to his pc, it won't boot up regularly, gets frozen at the signon screen. When I boot into safe mode (which takes years to boot into, I might add), once it finally gets logged on as administrator, svchost.exe and explorer.exe are both clocking in at apprx 50% each. This, of course, locks everything else up, so I can't perform HijackThis or anything else. Can't "end process" of explorer, and "end process" of svchost and you get the good old "shutting down in 10...9...8...7...etc,etc,etc". I need some suggestions guys!!! Help!!! :tazz:

Go HERE and download Stinger, then have it run. It will take awhile, but it may kill some of the virus' on the hd.
