A friend with a windows ME laptop and AVG is infected with this. Some 600 files were sick. After updating AVG, I guess the boot scanner caught the virus and would only let me start in safe mode. THen we ran AVG and put all the infected files in the "Vault" Now the computer won't start at all. I booted in dos and tried to restore all the infected files, said a short prayer, and swore when the computer still wouldn't boot, not even in safe mode.... Some of the infected files were in the registry, and some were even drivers (she'd complained about cd burner working sporadically, related problem?) I was going to do this..... Boot from a floppy, then save all of her vital files (college papers, artwork, etc) and use the system restore disk. Then will this thing start up?
