I have Win XP and a malicious VX2 trojan called guard.tmp... I have seen guides to removing this but just don't have enough knowledge to feel safe attempting it.
So I am thinking I can just reinstall XP to get rid of it.. is this correct?
But the problem I have is that I have a lot of stuff on my harddrive that isn't backed up.. and I have 2 harddrives.. so I am wondering if I can put everything on the auxiliary harddrive and then reinstall XP on C.
Will this work?
If so, couple questions.. how do I make sure the VX2 isn't transferred to the other drive and then reinstalls itself on the reinstalled XP C drive?
The other thing is.. I have a Hewlett Packard system.. and someone told me that these systems have a system restore disk.. but that I need to make a special boot disk to reinstall XP.. is this true?
