One of my computers is infected and I'm getting ready to format and reinstall Windows 7.  I already worked with people here from BleepingComputer about the infection.  As instructed, I copied to DVD personal files I want to save from the infected computer.  They are mostly photos I took.  I just scanned one of the disks and I inserted it in my CDRom and opened it (I have autorun turned off so I have to click on the icon from the COMPUTER icon screen) and noticed that the bar indicating how full the DVD is...is RED.  I don't recall seeing red before and am concerned about this.  The scan indicated there was no malicious items found, but even during the process of discovering the infection, the scans by both Avast and Malware Bytes indicated nothing malicious either.

 

Why would that bar be red? 

 

I've attached a jpg image.

The color of that bar indicates the remaining free space on a storage medium, with red indicating that very little space remains on the DVD (it's roughly 94% full.)

So...it isn't a warning about anything else then an almost full disk.

 

Thanks!
