One of my wifes favorite sites last night managed to get "infected" and thus when a pop up for a update to java came up, she hit accept. Well, her lappy is now a shiny happiness of Windows 7 antivirus 2012 I could go through the process of trying to remove it, but I thought that a simple restore would be better (simpler). However, I tried to use the restore CD and it failed in two differnt ways: In the first case I did it with her laptop. It finds the driver (the ones in the current restore CD ISO) but when it comes to finding the server it can't (yes, I did reboot the server just in case). I secondarily went right to the realtek site and got the XP drivers (to try and force 32bit compatability) and put them on a USB stick, but it won't find the drivers on stick. In the second case I even tried using my main rig as a host (I would pull her HDD and restore to a USB enclosure). I ran into the same issues, it can't find the server. What bugs me is that the last two times (older HW) I did not have this issue. Anybody know of some way to help me through this? I could say screw it and just manually remove the virus but not having the ability to restore from my backups is very bothersome.
