I had a virus and am told I'm now clean - but I have two External hard drives that have all my stuff on them - that I don't want to lose (grimace). I downloaded the flash detector - but I can't get it to run - is it because it does not work on windows seven? If it does not is there something else I can maybe use? Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Tammy :blink: :wacko:

Are you referring to Flash Disinfector?

If so. Why do you feel the need to run it?

And, no. It does not appear to run on Win7.

Hi Thunderz!

Thanks for the reply!
I had some virus's on my computer and Elise from the other forum helped me get rid of them.
I was thinking tonight that my Exte.rnal hard drives may also be infected as I have used them both recently.
I have all my important files on both of these - just things dear to my heart - so I thought maybe I should make sure they are clean
as well!

Do you know of a software I can use on 7 that would work (smile)

Thank you!

Tammy

Without looking at you previous posts where you were assisted by Elsie.

I will assume you have at least Malwarebytes and\or SuperAntispyware installed on your PC. It would be a pretty simple matter of scanning the external drive(s) in question using one or both. Scanning with on at a time of course.
