Hi,
I am working on a previously infected desktop running Vista Home Premium. After several scans (Super, MBAM, etc.) everything has been cleaned up. The damage done by the viruses has permanently damaged the OS in that many functions (many services, trying to start services, running some programs,updating Windows, restore, etc.) do not work. I am close to formating and installing XP (I don't have a Vista install DVD) but am trying to avoid that because my client has Microsoft Office and Quickbooks installed but has no disks for those programs. For example, I have tried endless number of things to get the default services (spooler and others) and to install AVG.
I can only think of one more thing to do and that is to do a Vista repair install but I don't have a Vista Home Premium installation dvd. What I do have is another desktop PC with a  working Vista Home Premium OS.
My question: Can I make a Vista Install dvd from my working machine? If so will it repair the OS system on the non working machine if I use the disk I created to do a repair install?
Thanks for your help
