ok as some of u know, i had to re-install windows yesterday after being hit by the nastiest virus ever.
brief summary. basically it infected all .exe, .mp3, .avi, .mpeg
i re-install no problem and then put my back up disc on which contained one .exe, that for netmeeting.
without thinking i went to install this, which obviously set off the virus again as i am begining to re-install everything again (second time in 24 hours).
my question is. I know that i have the affected virus in the one .exe on my back up cd.
is it safe to get the rest (word docs, jpeg, bitmap etc) off the cd or when i put the cd in the drive, will the virus start working?
