AVG anti virus and Ad-Aware won't run right.

AVG can't open the boot sector files, so only gets to 3 file failures and gives up.

Ad-Aware runs in my account but bombs after finding a 'few' infected files in admin.

Safe mode is next, after I get home. Am on parents machine right now.

It all started after plugging in the old external HDD via USB2 and copying files onto the new internal HDD.

Assume the trojan/worm/virus long dormant till it was touched for the copy.

Removed the files from the new HDD and will reformat it after scanning it in safe mode...if these will work in safe mode.

Was looking forward to getting my old files back on line. Need to access some notes for some new patents in discussion for a 'peer review'. Plus need some old emails from the Russians for possible consulting work.

I'll post back on how it goes in safe mode from the workstation, or this PC if it didn't work.
