My computer back home got infected with some trojan thing, and Win32/Tanatos.M and Win32/Huer got installed, i'll have to format my hard drive (no antivirus except AVG works), but that's another question i'll be asking soon.......(Seen a thread here, so will refer to it time being)

Anyways, i connected my iPod (Classic 120 GB) to it to get some file (before i realized that there was a virus in the computer), now i'm afraid of connecting my iPod to any computer (these viruses are some deadly stuff). But otherwise my iPod functions normally. The only thing is, its become a carrier.

How can i remove the viruses without losing the music??? (Filled with ~60 GB of music, most of which i deleted from my comp to save space), and yeah how can i prevent the virus from transferring from my iPod to the host PC when connected???

I HATE AVG (It says that every file is infected according to its resident sheild, and so all these files end up going to the virus vault! basically screwing up alot of applications) Think i should use Norton Stinger??

THANKS IN ADVANCE! :)
