I've got a Virtumonde/vundo infection on a computer that I do my banking etc on. For security purposed, I'm going to re-install the OS (XP pro). I've got my hard drive partitioned into 2 drives (C&D) C: drive has windows and a few programs on it, and D: drive has most of my programs and data (including all my pictures and music files).

My question is: If I reformat the C: drive and re-install windows on the C: drive, and leave the D: as is to preserve my data, do I run any risk of re-infection and/or data stealing?

Thanks in advance

I cannot give you a yes or no answer. There will always be that possibility
