  • How-Tos: How to repair a hard drive that won't boot

    My Windows 7 PC has four hard drives (C, E, F and G). I've been having a lot of trouble with them lately, and a couple of weeks ago my computer wouldn't start up. I ran through Startup Repair a few times, but it hasn't helped. I've tried disconnecting my secondary hard drives and reconnecting them one at a time following restarts. Everything worked fine for a while but, after I tried to burn a DVD, I again got a locked-up computer with only two of the four drives available. Selectively adding the drives hasn't cured things this time, although the C drive continues to work normally.

  • How-Tos: How to clean a virus off a USB stick

    As a regular speaker at conferences, I carry my presentations on a USB memory key and plug it into the organiser's laptop to access them. In doing so, I believe my USB drive has picked up some malware. In Windows it appears on the desktop as a green icon with 'Keygen' written on it. It also creates a message box saying 'UpdateNetFramework'. If I delete the file it simply reappears. Norton Antivirus 2009 hasn't managed to eradicate it, and I now have the same message on all the USB drives I use.
