Once the disc is ready, boot off it, and run the malware scan.
A different option, is to remove the hard drive, and slave it into another computer, using that 2nd computer to clean the slaved hard drive.
I wouldn't even know how to remove the hard drive. I did down load the boot disk, but it won't boot from it. The inspiron 9000, tries, but goes back to the blue screen. The inspiron 6000 comes on, windows comes up I have all icons, WIFI is running but it will not let me on the internet. I put both lap tops away for a while. Now maybe I will have the patience to try again.
As long as the CD was created correctly, make sure to set the boot order in the BIOS. If you miss that part, it'll skip trying to boot off the CD, and continue to try and boot off the hard drive.
Don't let it stress you out. It's not worth it.
Thank you:) I will try again and let you know how it works out.
I have tried again and still all I get is Rundll, real player comes up and wants to connect but can't, window installer keeps popping up, External error exception C0000006 comes up, and it keeps wanting a solution center disk or a sonic disk. I have downloaded your bootable CD, but the inspiron 6000 won't read it to reboot. HELP!!!!!!! It will not let me run any of my fixit programs, or any security programs. Will not open the internet, even though it has a strong signal.
Once you create the bootable AVG disc, you need to change the first boot device in the BIOS. Once that's done, then it'll restart, and it should boot off the rescue disc.
