I rebooted my lappy with the KNOPPIX 3.9 LiveCD, and it reads my Windoze NTFS partition. And though that box doesn't have a SATA drive (I have 3 others in two boxen but can't reboot them now), there are drivers in that kernel for some SATA drives and RAID controllers.
I've used KNOPPIX to recover Windoze boxen that were corrupted, and even some that wouldn't even boot in Windoze anymore ... quite a few times.
For the anti-virus, I'm not sure how ClamAV works, but you can go online with KNOPPIX and perhaps do a free online scan. I'd try AVG Anti-Virus
. They used to have a free online scan, but I didn't look...if they don't check someone else like Symantec (Norton), or Computer Associates (better than Norton). I tell you, it sure did make me feel good when I read all those Top Threats
that I run Slackware and check my email with Thunderbird, and browse the web with Firefox, and don't have to worry about that stuff anymore!
If you have a virus, trojan, or worm that has caused your Windoze drive to be unusable, the best thing you can do is to save your data, write the drive to zeroes, and start over. I don't build Windoze PCs anymore, but when I did, I would always used Symnatec's Ghost to make an image of the drive. So, when this happened, it only took me about 10 minutes to get it restored. Installing and configuring Windoze is a royal pain in the neck!
