Make sure you don't infect your spare

nope, don't think i have YET !! :thumbsup: i just hope i disconnected my other hard drives quick enuf before they got it..
so i'm knackered then, I just hope formatting will get rid of it cos some people say it doesn't .
Gutted tho lost loads of pics of grand children etc, what is annoying is Avast picked it up before it got on my computer i deleted the file that was infected but it still destroyed all the exe's.

Some people have even suggested a cold shutdown before booting to the cd for formatting, I would do that just as a precaution and then delete my system partition and reformat it

Of course I would be using a standard windows cd, I don't think I would trust anything else
