Had to buy a new computer after virus attacked my laptop. Now using Ad-Aware SE, Spybot, SpywareBlaster, firewall, etc to protect new computer. But, had tons of pic, files I needed on laptop. So, I put laptop hard drive into a removable drive so I could access those files. Ran all three programs after installing removable drive. None of the scans found anything so I assumed all ok. But today ran Symatec which gave me the following message on the screen:

Virus Status Infected
Your computer is infected with at least one known threat.
120846 files scanned, 4 file(s) infected on your disk drives.

No viruses were detected in memory.

Your computer is infected with at least one known virus or Trojan Horse.
Search for the name of the threat(s) listed below on the Symantec Security Response
site for removal information.

F:\WINDOWS\TEMP\Acr6073.TMP is infected with W32.Netsky.P@mm
F:\WINDOWS\TEMP\Acr7270.TMP is infected with W32.Netsky.P@mm
F:\WINDOWS\TEMP\Acr6212.TMP is infected with W32.Netsky.P@mm
F:\WINDOWS\TEMP\Acr5286.TMP is infected with W32.Netsky.P@mm


(when i tried to copy and paste the message this is what appeared on BC screen):

I disconnected the drive just to be safe and ran Ad-Aware SE, Spybot, SpywareBlaster, Windows security check and checked firewall on new computer. All came back clear. What should I do to remove the virus from the removable drive? Can the virus eventually migrate from one harddrive to another? Ive been using the removable for several months without incident? Ideas? Thanks.

Do an online scan with the two programs listed below. If these programs find something they can't get rid of post a Hijack This log using the instructions found in this link:
