Hello, everyone! My C: drive was overflowing causing slow downs and freeze ups and I found out I had viruses, trojans, etc. to complicate everything. Nasdaq is helping me in Spyware Removal and I appreciate that help so much! He suggested that I come to this forum to discuss the other problem I am having with the new external drive I purchased.

I have an internal drive that runs XP Media Edition 2005 SP3 and another internal hard drive that I'd like to clear for the possibility of a dual boot with Windows 7; some programs I have will not run under Windows 7. I also have a 500 GB external drive and now have added 1TB external so I can move things around and do a massive reorganization. Until we are done with the Spyware Removal, I am hesitant to move anything to the newest drive which I have partitioned into 3 approx equal partitions.

I have attached a sample of the errors I am getting without using the drive at all. The new partitions are N, O, & P. I have an error for two of the partitions.

Since you are working with an active log as you have stated, you should NOT make 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, here or at another forum. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the logs 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.

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

Once your malware helper nasdaq has deemed your system is clean, please contact any moderator via PM to request this topic be reopened.
