    Hi,

    This morning I recieved emails from friends saying my account was sending out possible trojan/phishing software.

    Unfortunately before I could investigate, my partner had opened the email sent to her on her netbook and run the download. Now the computer won't boot the OS.

    The email and file read as http://rapidshare.com/files/430252137/Hi.exe

    The netbook is an MSI netbook running Windows 7 Starter. The computer will POST but then just goes blank. I am able to access the BIOS but when I try and access system recovery, nothing happens.

    The problem I also face is I obviously do not have a DVD drive for the computer.

    As I can't actually get into the OS, I can't configure any scans to see what has affected the computer.

    What steps should I take to get the OS up and running?

    Any other information I may have missed?

    Thanks in advance :)

    HF.
