      >>> If you're trying to avoid formatting and rebuilding the OS (which is the
      >>> best solution) because you don't have a data backup or for some other reason

      Three reasons -- not my computer, already promised I'd be able to fix it, and
      the best reason of all -- man v machine and I don't like to lose!!

      I like Kelly's idea.

      "I've had OK luck on some of these troublesome ones by pulling the drive and
      connecting it using one of those really cheap USB/IDE adapter cables. Start a
      known good computer, make sure AUTO RUN is not on, then plug the drive/adapter
      into the known good machine. Scan from there.


      I never tried it that way but none of the files would be in use and the virus
      code would not be running.
      It sounds good, only question is --- Is there any risk of infecting the host
