unable to access data

By bubloo ·
Dear all

I am having one windows 95 installed in Pentium machine. My boot record was infected by wyz & Eek (b) virus. I used wyx removal utility. after removed the virus i couldn't boot my machine. It says " Invalid or non system disk error" so i used windows 95 boot disk to boot the machince and transferred the system files using SYS command. after transferring, all my data are lost. It's all very very sensitive data. now the machine is booting, but i am getting only c: prompt. windows isnot loading. when i see the contends of the drive all files are in asci format except command.com. is there is any other way to recover our data. pls. give solution to us. i will be greatfull to u.

use your back up disks or you could do a search for MS-DOS on the internet. The complete package is probably 3MB. so get at least 5 disks, go on anothe computer, make one disk a boot disk, and extract the dos files to these disks. Now insert the boot disk and you have DOS.

I would guess you didn't correctly remove the eek virus. Follow the directions here:

And make sure you have an uninfected boot floppy that is write-protected just in case.
