My friend's computer has been open to viruses, spyware, malware, and anything else that might be out there and it seems like she's contracted it all. I have tried to clean up the mess (she had several Trojans on board) and installed Spyware Blaster, Adaware, and AVG anti-virus, but the improvement is only slight. I finally suggested doing a system recovery to see if that cleans things up. Recovery went smoothly until the last screen before bringing up the desktop - pushed the finish button and it's just hanging there. Left it at that spot for an hour and it hasn't done a thing. I'm considering a full system recovery for tomorrow. Told her she'll lose whatever data she has but since she couldn't access anything anyway it doesn't make any difference. Control panel and windows explorer could not be accessed before the recovery I did today (this was a recovery without data loss). Any ideas on what may be going on, and if the full system recovery can fix it?
