Good Afternoon

I suspect my computer is infected by a virus some of my students and colleagues have been the victim to. My external hard drive (600GB), which is about 97% full, only shows files stored on the root directory, which makes up about 5% of the capacity of the drive. The rest of the files are stored in folders and sub-folders. I can access those for which I can remember the first-level folder names, by typing the path in the address bar. I have created a new folder on the drive, and I have moved those folders that I can remember to this new folder.

However, the 'virus' should still be on my system? I have NOD32 installed, registered, and it updates daily. Could someone please guide me in the right direction?
