on my laptop hard drive i have a trojan or virus thats causing no end of problem s ive ran several antivirus scans spy ware scans et c using 6 different programs even an online one at eset so im thinking of using it as an excuse to upgrade the hardrive

i have a few questions
1)what can i do with all my music/films i have about 40 gigs worth and some is irraplaceable

also how do i get windows on the new hard drive my laptop provided me with a windows reset disc but i take it this is not a proper copy of windows and i dont have 200 something odd quid to buy a new copy

if i were to get a portable one can i just transfer the files straight a cross reset windows on my current h/d then transfer them back

and would resetiing windows get rid of the virus/trojan

If you were to clone the old hard drive onto the new one you would also transfer the virus across,If you have a recovery disc this should be all you need to reinstall windows on a new drive,To get you documents from your old drive you need to either fit it into another pc and copy the documents or get a usb enclosure and then copy the documents over,If you do this you will need to scan the old drive with a virus scanner before opening any documents,
Have you tried running Malwarebytes ??
no how do i get that

not that this is gonna help, but having anything irreplaceable on your laptop is just mad. If it's irreplaceable you should have backups!
