My frien's PC, I believe has a virus that has attacked the HDD boot sector. She believes it was from a file called Snowhite, probably a .vbs. Does anyone know what this may be. Or how to attempt recovery. My idea was to install a new HDD and try to extract files that way. I don't know much about virii. Ite PC is a gateway, so it has that stupid startup screen. The system locks up during that screen. Will a DOSboot disk bypass that screen? Thank's for the help guys.
