My PC got a hacker virus that continuesly rerouted me to a certain page anytime I opened my browser. After receiving that I got a Trojan virus that was localized in my Win32 folder. I used firefox mobile and downloaded..."bit...something" it was a free spyware. It destrroyed most of the infections, but this is where the problem started...

The PC started acting sluggish and will now not even boot up. I get the Windows screen and it starts to boot, but then it goes to the HP screen & starts the process over and over. I tried reinstalling and repairing the operating system w/ the XP disc and it never worked. I need very important files off the HP HD that were backed up, but got corrupted In the transfer to my portable hd. My IT friend told me of a device that can be connected to a working PC and necessary files transferred, off a bad PC, but will this work on a PC HD that won't boot into windows? He said it should work if I connect the bad laptop to the PC w/ said cable and download Malware Bytes on the working PC and it will scan and transfer the files of the bad PC's HD. I really need to get my 138 recorded dives off my dive computer software on the bad PC and can't afford to pay for a HD recovery by a professional company. Can anyone please help me?
