I have an infected computer with sensitive information. Kaspersky detected Trojans and removed them, but the symptoms remain. I copied the HDD so I can reinstall windows and keep the sensitive data intact. This is a clients data and its "critical" that its kept safe.
I have to have it done shortly for them and uncertain how to get the infected copied windows.old file back on their computer without it reinfecitng the clean install. Any suggestions on a different free antivirus scanner or other metods I should undertake?
Thanks!! :guitar:

You have posted the same topic issue here.

Please do not start new threads or duplicate topics as this causes confusion and makes it more difficult to get the help you need to resolve your issues when asking for and receiving assistance elsewhere.
