I've posted about my problem in the HiJack forum, in the mean time I want to prepare myself in case I just need to wipe my system. The majority of my files were already backed up on an external drive that was not connected to my PC at the time of infection. As for the remaining files I would like to try to save, can I burn those files to dvd's to save them? Can viruses move themselves to the disks without me knowing? Or any other suggested method of backing up would be appreciated. I'm primarily concerned about my photos in RAW canon format ".CR2" files.
