I have a Hard Drive that was primary drive in a Windows Vista machine. This machine wasn't used much but I went in to recover some tax information for my April taxes and noticed some malware. It blocked internet, wouldn't allow me access to Windows Finder, etc. So I removed the hard drive and attached to my Win7 machine as a External Hard drive.

The Hard Drive comes right up and shows 32.9GB free of 139GB hard drive. When I double click on the drive it shows 1 file, BOOTSECT.BAK

I see no other files or folders. I've tried googling with no luck, any clue what I can do to see/retrieve my files again from this Hard Drive?

I don't even mind paying for some help if you can access my computer via Teamviewer (free program, teamviewer.com) and help me resolve. I can send you $10 via Paypal if you can help me access my file system again.

I also have Skype where we can IM and get you started! Just let me know your user name and I will add you and get started!

It's been fixed, seems the malware simple HIDDEN all the files.
