Hi everyone ,
I need some advice . I have a removable 500GB hard drive made by Toshiba . Recently Microsoft Security Essentials detected potentially harmful items on my laptop (Packard Bell with operating system Windows 7) , which I cleaned up using above program , but unfortunately I cannot clean my removable hard drive from those items ( probably source of all the problems) , every time when I connect my laptop to it Security Essentials inform me that there is a problem , than I clean again , restart and all over again . When hard drive is disconnected and I do cleaning on my laptop and than do quick scan its appear a message that everything is ok . So I am guessing that problem lies in my hard drive which is infected badly and which infection I cant remove with my Microsoft Security Essentials.
So far following advice I did few steps to discover some more details :
I hold left shift while connecting hard drive to my laptop and I did custom scan only on my hard drive , found Worm :Under SHOW DETAILS
Items I found
I clicked CLEAN PC and restarted it as Microsoft Security Essentials asked me .Straigh after laptop restarted( my hard drive was still connected during restarting process) Security Essentilas alerted me that my Pc is at risk , I did a quick scan this time of whole system (hard drive still connected). This time under SHOW DETAILS message appeared :
CATEORY : Worm
DESCRIPTIONS : This program is dangerous and self- propagates over a network connection
RECOMMENDED ACTION: Remove this software immediately
Looked like this fellow is still on my E disk (external hard drive) but this time changed his location . I pressed once more CLEAN PC and restarted , but while doing this I unconnected Hard drive and did quick scan only on my laptop . No threats were founded and Microsoft Security Essentials said that my laptop is clean. In that case looks like the whole problem is sitting in my external hard drive and I cant get rid of that .
Thank you for your time in responding to my problem
