Sorry to post this at PA.com but you guys seem the most reponsive and helpful out of all the forums I have visited. Hope yous can help me with this:
I found a virus on my external hardrive/USB and determined it was one of those botook.exe's. I've had the file deleted a dozen times thru Norton, McAfee, CA and ClamWin but it keeps recreating itself somehow??
Anyway in an attempt to finally remove this I copied my portable apps and documents folders to my home computer, formatted the external harddrive and this morning copied all the stuff back (Took ages with 30+ gigs). Thought I had fixed it all up.
WRONG!! The bootok.exe reappeared when I inserted my drive at work this morning and now I can't use firefox or thunderbird or some of my other apps. Some error message come up about security but I think it has something to do with how all the files now returned to my USB are set as read only and for some reason I can't change it??
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP!!
I use my drive for work, study and and home and have both valuable work files and months worth of study all stored on it. Some one please help.
