here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic412546.html/page__p__2356692__fromsearch__1#entry2356692
if it is incorrect to post here also, no problem, i apologize, ignore this.
but i thought that while im waiting i would ask a question here.

when i go through the process that they will guide me through in that forum, will that remove the virus from all my drives or just the C drive?

i ask because i am certain that the virus boot.tidserv entered my brand new computer via some data files i transferred from my old computer infected with this same virus.. those files reside on my ext HD and are still there.
i am concerned that after i finish the process here, the virus might still remain on my ext HD and will reinfect.

any advice about this?

also i know the experts are VERY busy. can anyone give me a ballpark figure as to how long it usually takes to start the process. i posted two days ago.

thanks

by the way thistory of this is in the other forum but to recap and add a little
norton found boot.tidserv but couldnt remove it
ran malwarebyes which didnt detect any threats
poted that dds? info on the other forum
then i ran kapersky antivirus tool, it removed something but i didnt notice what.
then i reposted the dds info

then i ran norton, malwarebytes, spyware doctor, kapersky tdsskiller tooler, and they all found no threats on my computer (im not sure if tdsskiler checked all my drives)

but im still not sure if the virus didnt already make some nasty changes that are still there
or if the virus maybe is still hiding somewhere

are you sure the experts in the other forum dont mind me posting here??

No it's not OK... You have a working Malware topic open here as you stated in the first post.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic412841.html/page__gopid__2359203#entry2359203

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
