    Last week I plugged in a thumb drive and caught a virus and now the laptop won't load explorer.exe automatically or manually (says cannot be found). I plugged in the drive as an external disc and the it will not show it as a drive.

    How do I get files off of the laptop drive?

    Problem solved. I just plugged in an external drive to the laptop and copied from there. I had to do everything manually though by going to New Task, browse, then copy folders one by one.
