Saving what I can


Recommended Posts

My PC has been killed by Ramnit. My fault for using the paid for version of Malwarebytes.

Anyway I have an 80gig portable hard drive which I have used maybe once or twice during the time the Ramnit was killing my PC.

Can anyone suggest a way to scan the portable hard drive.

I now have a new clean laptop with paid for version of malwarebytes

I am sorry, But I am not sure what you are wanting.

I am guessing you want a way to scan a external hard drive. Just run MBAM, click full scan, select the letter of the drive,

I am concerned that if I connect my external hard drive to my laptop if the external drive is infected, it may infect my laptop. From what I have read, one of the ways Ramnit spreads is through external data attachements.

I have BT Netprotect which is provided in conjunction with Macafee, but I am not sure if BT are capable of dealing with anything remotely technical and would appreciate some guidance.

A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing and I have a little knowledge
