It just happened to me. I tried all the possible tools but all the exe. files have been corrupted, cannot start any recovery tools from anywhere. I called a friend, nerd, who has a filter and a special system cleaner. We have to pull my harddrive out of my computer, connect it to the filter and then run it through his system cleaner. He tells me this will clean out the virus and spyware and leave all my data intact. I know of no other way. Find a good reputable repair shop in your area and ask them about the filter cleaner. They shouldn't charge more than fifty to seventy five dollars for the work.
