    All,
    Burned a cd (using my Intel mac) in order to boot up my horribly malware-infected Dell Inspiron E1405 laptop. The one file on the cd is UCBD4WINV350.exe, and I am unable to boot from it. I *am* able to boot from the regular XP installation CD, but for some reason the UCBD disk isn't recognized.

    Should I burn another one at a slower speed? Is this a mac incompatibility issue?

    I've already reformatted the partition and reinstalled XP (so recovering data is not an issue) but the virus remains! (cscript.exe, among many others no doubt).

    Ack, I need this laptop up and running again asap!

    Thanks for any advice...I am still trying to understand UBCDWIN.

      Follow the instructions found on the How To Build page...
      Plan A is always more effective when the device you are working on understands that Plan B involves either a large hammer or screwdriver....
