ALL FOLDERS ON MY USB HAVE BEEN CHANGED TO SHORT CUTS


This is usually a signal that a virus is at work. Check that your computer has been checked and is clear. Then check your thumb drives-all of them including your external hard drives.

the beauty of installing a quality anti virus and internet security system is
it detects any virus or any hacker attempts first and warns you to disconnect or discontinue on the site
It is also set up that when you select deep scan (takes a while ) there are no bits of the virus left as you have found can happen when you try to remove a virus your self or use inferior / free anti virus systems / programs

Try to boot from your OS cd or recovery disc. Run the disk check software and see if your hard disk is mechanically ok or it crashed. If your hard disk is mechanically functional then run virus check on your hard disk. This will clean all the virus infections. And you will be alright hopefully.
If your hard disk's boot sector is damaged you may want to format the hard disk and place the boot sector in another portion of hard drive.

What happen if a hard drive have a virus?


I don't think a hard drive can have a virus. It's the software it stores that could have the virus. If you do not take care of it, it could spread, and depending on the type if virus (or worm, etc..), you may either corrupt your data, or in rare cases, can cause the hard drive to physically fail.

You would also be at risk to having hackers access the information on your harddrive.

Can I put stuff from a comp. w/ a virus onto a maxtor hard drive


Yes, naturally it depends on the virus, what kind it is and where it is stored. Most of the time you can safely transfer files to another hard drive worry free. I would not use a program such as "Ghost" that copies all your system's drivers over. Only save necessary files, format your old hard drive and re-load everything.

Hope this helps,

Thanks

Virus


ok, you could try this out, i do this all the time....

remove the hard drive and install it in an external hard drive casing. you will need another computer that has an up to date virus software to connect this hard drive (through USB) to. scan this hard drive using the second computer, it will definitely remove the virus. Once you are done remove your hard drive from the casing and put it back in your laptop. this should fix your virus problem.

and get yourself a good anti virus software. if you don't know what to get, drop me an email, i will give you advise on what to buy, so to save you money and give you protection.

I have a virus I cannot remove from my hard drive


If you can go to Avira.com and download there repair disk,you can put it on a disk or flash drive, it will run before windows starts(dos), you force the lap to boot from the disk. If this is a virus Avira will kill it.
Avira is the 2nd top anti-virus on planet, there free edition is better
than AVG, Avg is 21 out of the top 20 anti-virus.

Yes, if you reinstall windows and delete the drive,install to (C) new raw and format, it will be gone, but a lot of work when you don't need to.
