Yesterday MSE found 48 files infected with Ramnit, it tried to clear them but on every restart it was still finding more and more, I tried MBAM but that found nothing, after searching google it was recommended to format and reinstall Win 7 which I have done (I didn't back anything up).
Only problem is I have a network drive that was orginally mapped/connected to the Ramnit infected PC, how can I tell if it has spread to this network drive? This drive has a lot of stuff I need.
Also what programs should I use to prevent this in the future? I was using MSE and browsing with Firefox when I mistyped an URL and popups came up (They got past Adblock Plus) thats when Security Essentials said I was infected, it was downhill from there.
Thanks for any help.
