I had the TQ virus a while back and posted some logs and got some help. Unfortunately, my computer conked out on my half-way (dust build-up in the onboard videocard and the computer wouldnt leave the startup screen). So I decided to have my videocard upgraded but the shop kinda messed up installation and had to reformat the computer.
Here are my concerns:
That virus probably wouldnt be a problem anymore, right? Since everything is being wiped out? But I have several flash disks, external HDs, HD camcorders, SD cards, iPods, cellphones, and an Ubuntu run laptop (the virus might just be dormant in it) that could still be carrying the virus.
So given that, is there anything I can do rather than (my original plan) 'contaminate the freshly reformatted drive and post a new log' to avert having to do that?
(just realized... I'm not too great with computers and not sure if reformatting would actually get rid of the malware in the first place XD)
