G'day guys and gals.
I jsut read this thread http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/265002/infected-with-sdra64exe-running-vista/
and read some of the responses from the techs and Im rathe worried now. Im the process of backing up my files (but I have so many) and gonna blow up my C drive and instal Windows 7 since its a good excuse to get it.
But about 80% of my programs are installed to my 1TB drive (I call it my E:) so Im putting my documents and desktop things there so when I format I dont have to download or lose anything important.
What my fear is, will I still be able to access them as if they were still part of my C drive after the format. For example, I get Windows 7, then I try and access my 1TB drive and instead of accessing the game, or the program, it wont and I have to install it, update it and dl the patches again (Yes Im an MMO gamer)
Anyway, I've been trying all these ways to delete this damn virus. I've tried all the solutions and I found out they arent for Vista. Thsi is the only place that seems to know what they are doing. I did the solution where you end the svchost.exe tasks and the registry like the orignal poster did and ended up having my pc reset.... and worse, I have about 13 svchost.exe processes running at the moment.
Id like some help if you guys know what to do. Im in the process of buying Windows seven and MAYBE a new Hard drive so I can keep my current C: as a back up jsut in case.
My other dumb question is, if I install a new hard drive with a new OS, and then connect my infected drive as if it was some kind of external drive to drag files I need over, will it still infect my new OS?
Thanks for any help in advance.
