A few days back, I got a nasty piece of malware which I am fairly certain I managed to remove. Initially the main problem was that the computer would halt with a Stop 7B error, but after lots of hair pulling I tried disconnecting hard drives.
There is a system drive, and two additional drives that are just storage. If I have either of these additional drives connected (one is IDE, one is SATA, and I had the SATA one connected using a USB enclosure as well) I get the 7B error again, can't boot either into safe mode or normal mode.
I can hook up the drives using an enclosure and see the files just fine. I just can't boot with the drives connected.
Anybody have any ideas?
