I had a Windows 7 installation on my old hard drive which got infected with rootkit.0access. I tried removing it with malwarebytes but it kept coming back. Also originally MB did get rid of a few other infections (successfully it seems). Anyway, I decided to abandon the windows installation and start again on a new solid state drive.
I've had the old HD unplugged since I did the new install. Is it safe to plug it in, boot to my new HD, do a scan, and start picking my files out? Obviously I won't run any programs from it...
