So recently Machiavelli helped me remove some really bad malware. I re installed Windows 8 because somehow it became corrupt. I connected my external hard drive and when I was going through Windows Explorer I saw the exact same files that were there when I was infected. The desktop.ini and thumbs.db started showing up everywhere, shortcuts inside of folders, and hidden folders. Could it be that my external hard drive had the malware? If possible can that be cleaned as well. Thank you so much in advance. Oh and I tried running MBAM but it kept on getting stuck/frozen on a single file even when I ran it in Safe Mode.
