If you can help but need more information then please do not hesistate to ask also I am not afraid of losing my stuff my only ask is I have no USB's or DVD's to hand at the moment so all those options are out of the window.
Sorry for the perhaps unhelpful question, but how do you know it was a virus?
There are several possible reasons for Windows failures, for example drive errors, or some corrupted files or applications, or a corrupted registry. None of them has to do with virus activity. If drive problems led to the failure, you may need to check the drive and mark bad sectors, or even replace the drive altogether.
If it was a virus, was MSE not able to catch it? Just curious (and worried for my Win 7 install). I was hoping Microsoft had improved a bit.
