clean hdd

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
After 2 days of cleaning I finally have my hdd free of virus & all
such junk.
If I set a restore point now & later it becomes infected  again can I
go back to this restore point & loose all the infections or will they
remain ?
Another question:
I have a second hdd that may be infected so if I run it as a slave to
the clean hdd will it infect the clean hdd ? This is a backup drive &
is almost identical to the clean drive.
Thanks for any advice

as far as I know (I dont use windows restore points) this windows
feature only restores only "special" points of windows (files,
configurations etc.). To get a complete restoration of whole HDs,
partitions you need an image creating application. I use True Image from
Acronis for all my (often daily backups). Naturally these images must be
done BEFORE any infections (virusfree) otherwise you would restore any
infection back!

If you get infected again, you haven't fixed the problem:  stopping what
you did to get infected in the first place.
