I am new to the forum so hello to you all.
My flatmate has a very infected pc which she asked me too look at and I discovered through spy bot that she had...6222 problems.
So after a good few hours of trying to fix the problems spybot told me that not all problems are fixed and I had to restart, so I did and it still found problems. Then after looking on tinternet I discovered that there was the wwwcoolsearch, Trek Blue Error Nuker and various others on the pc.
I tried a couple of other malware programs but the problem was still there.So I did more looking then discovered this forum and realised that a lot of people had this problem and that it could be fixed.
I had a look a at the post (You Must Read This before Posting a Hijackthis Log, Required steps before posting your log) and downloaded all the programs that was recommended.
My flatmate has a lot of her work on this pc and needs to back it up before I start trying to fix it, which brings me to my question.
Will the files that I back up to disc be infected?
Sorry if this is a obvious question but I have a few years experience using computers but have never had to deal with something like this as my own computer is protected and Iím very careful when Iím on the internet.
Any help would be fantastic.
