malware cleaner removed essential files - trying to repair


Recommended Posts

I'm in a bit of pickle:

I was helping a mate get rid of Trojans and viruses on his Fujitsu Lifebook e-series laptop.

Unfortunately the malware cleaner removed some essential Windows files so I'm stuck in Task Manager at the moment.

Using Task Manager I can access the whole of the disk, and start and stop the laptop.

I copied some of the DLL files Windows XP said it required via a burnt CD, but after copying iertutil.dll I got the error message "The ordinal 681 could not be located in the dynamic link library iertutil.dll". After trying to google research this error message, I decided to use the XP cd to try and repair XP.

However I now get "Setup did not find any hard disk drives".

I am not comfortable with Bios handling - however I did manage to find the following info:

Serial ATA Port 0 Fujitsu MHV2080BH - SATA

I've tried to google "mvh2080bh" to see if i could find a driver but no luck there. (And of course since its a laptop there is no floppy drive so i'd have to make a slipstream (?) CD, hopefully I could manage that - perhaps on my own Windows 7 laptop?)

So now i'm stuck - I'd love any tips on what to do next, so my mate doesn't blame me for ruining his laptop....

Just thought I'd let you know that I gave up. I just couldn't find the drivers/files I needed.

Luckily I did find a techy mate who was happy to donate a laptop that had been "put out to pasture" but still was an upgrade for the old Fujitsu so all's well etc.
