Virus may have render my PC useless and I can't get rid of it - Please help
Posted on 2006-06-25
I have an IBM Vista which I believe is infected with a fairly destructive virus. First of all, my PC keeps on rebooting by itself every 5-10 minutes. It will do this even in safe mode.
Unfortunately, I don’t anti-virus software on my hard drive so I can’t even do a scan. Second, I tried to install an anti-virus program from a CD-ROM, but my CD-ROM is not reading any CDs at all. I believe this is due to the virus. Thirdly, I can’t even do a fresh install of Windows OS because it simply cannot boot from the CD-ROM. So my question is: is there anything else I can do? I’m running out of options here. Your expertise will be greatly appreciated.
BTW: my IBM is running Windows Server 2003.
