Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

Antivirus System PRO virus.

\015 I have a PC that has been infected with the nasty ''Antivirus System PRO'' virus. Nothing would remove it so I bought a new HP Pavilion yesterday which has Norton. Is it possible to transfer needed files from the infected computer to a disc on it's CD drive, then use the CD to install them on the new HP without transfering the virus? This is probably a dumb question but thought I's give it a try anyway.\015

\015\012Purchase a flash drive (a cdrom will not work for this) and back-up your data on the thumb drive. I would recommend an 8 gig as to fit all your files.
\015\012
\015\012Place the flash drive in the new computer and scan it immediately with the Norton.

\015\012By the way, there is one great software that will save the old computer and it only cost 30 dollars. I use it to kill this Rogue on all my customers computers and it takes me 10 minutes to get rid of it. Definetly worth the purchase!
