So MSE found Backdoor:Win32/Cycbot.B on my system. I've read about how dangerous this backdoor trojan is, and I've seen in this forum the steps to remove it without doing a reformat of my hard drive. However, I think I will go with a reformat and clean OS install. But I had a question about this.
I have two internal hard drives in my computer. One is basically blank but for a few songs and word documents, the other has a partition for my Win 7 OS, basically a System Reserved and a C: partition. So, I want to know if I transfer my important documents to my second blank hard drive and reformat the hard drive with Windows on it, will that remove this trojan, or will it be on both hard drives, requiring both to be wiped? Any suggestions or things I should know? Thanks so much.
