  • Sean, I’ve got the pesky virus in my computer, but I cannot start it even in safe mode. Because of that, I have made the drive slave to see if I can remove it in some other way. Do you have any recommendations on how to go about removing it from an uninfected computer using the infected as an external hard drive?

    Thank you

    • Marissa,

      If you have another computer that you can slave that drive in to, run an avti-virus scan on that drive. Also, wouldn’t be a bad idea to run any malware software on it either, including Malwarebytes.
