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
