So, I was infected with Sality by Combofix at an earlier attempt to remove a virus, chronicled here. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/483520/nod32-finds-mbr-sector-0-virus/
I thought the problem was dealt with, but Nod32 is finding Sality on one of my external drives, which is currently plugged into my main computer. I am worried that the virus has passed through my computer, but I get the feeling that the virus is inert at present, and am crossing my fingers that that is the case. I ran SalityKiller from Kapersky and it found no infections on my main machine, and I don't know if it scanned my external drives.
Can you help me? And, how do I check to see if Sality is, indeed, completely removed? I don't want to reformat.
I have a main computer, and a laptop. I also have two external drives, a USB stick an an android phone. I don't know if it's passed to these devices. I didn't know where else to post this thread.
I should have reported on this sooner, but I know the ComboFix guys have fixed the software, and I thought it was completely gone. I just want to get rid of the infection.
