Does it require a ISO burner?
Yes, an ISO burner. It should create a bootable disk.

Where can I get one? The one you recommended before has expired.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is the only one I could find but I couldn't investigate further because I don't know what model of computer you have.

The above link won't open. This is a new Toshiba Satellite L775. Should I just uninstall the ISO burner and try reinstalling it. It was working but the 7 day trial demo timed out.

If it's a new laptop why not go back for your warranty? Yes, you can download a new ISO burner.

Because the laptop is not the machine that.s down. I'm pretty sure the burner on the laptop is an ISO burrner.

The ISO burner is a separate program that you need to download and use to create the ISO disk.

Ok. I downloaded another ISO burner. It's called Soft32 Downloader, that is bundled with some other spam, evidently, if I do the quick install. I have to do advanced to keep the unwanted toolbars off my machine. But I can't figure out how to burn the 7510801 file. When I click on the desktop icon it says it is already running. It is version 8.25 I do NOT want to run the "Free Scan on this laptop, just burn the boot disk.

I downloaded that file and I'm afraid that it's no good for your problem. It does not create a bootable disk and, even if you could create such a disk, I don't think your CD ROM is working correctly. The only solution I can see now is to install a new harddrive and install your OS on it. You can try slaving your present harddrive to another computer and retrieve all you important data.

How can I slave the infected harddrive without infecting the new computer?

You're problem with a defective hard drive.

I think the harddrive was infected before it crashed. The virus maybe caused the crash?

It may have caused it to crash but I doubt it caused it to become defective.
