    As the title says, windows was corrupted by a virus (A popup PWNED me :cry:). I don't care about getting the old thing to work, I just need to pull some data from it. How do I go about doing this? Is it as simple as just moving the hdd to another computer and taking the data off of it? any programs out there? Any help would be appreciated:D

    You should be able to put the drive in another computer and pull the data. Just make sure you are not pulling any infected files to the different computer.
