Question about Computers & Internet
Because I'm strictly a novice with computers, I need to ask a follow-up question. In your answer that you posted on August 12, you said to interface the infected drive to ide 0 or ide 1...The problem is I don't exactly know how to do that; Where do I start? Also, the fact that the drives are SATA, does this matter at all?
Thank You again,
If its sata ide 0 and ide 1 wont be there! just plug in the sata drive on the plug in the mob that says sata 2.. basically, plug the drive into the other available sata slot... make sure the pc you're plugging into has av and is updated, then scan the slave drive from the pc (i would do it twice), also, run antispyware (twice)... once done and the drive is clean, personally, i would copy all the files across you want to save (in case anything bad does happen); then unplug the drive and plug it back in - if the worse happens and windows wont boot (sometimes its so infected it takes systems files with it) and you've saved all your work - personally, i would just reformat and start again then copy the work across... it could probably be saved, but a lot of the time its quicker just to save the work and format

I'm not sure what he's asking you to do, but if you have a drive that's infected with a virus you can slave it to functional drive that's not infected as long as the functional drive is protected with software. Then you simply plug it into the ide chain and make sure the little jumper settings next to the ribbon are set to slave and the good drive is set to master. This is what he means by ide 0 and 1
