I just got a new computer and I'm trying to import my back up files from my old computer. I ran a mcafee scan first of the external hard drive that i was using to back up my old computer. It wasn't much of a surprise but many of them are infected with the Artemis trojan (700 files). So i've removed the files i didn't recognize (a .bat file) and restored the files that I did recognize and wanted to keep. Well, i've re-run the scan and restored the files i wanted to keep several times and i keep coming up with the same number of infected files. What am i doing wrong?
Thanks so much,
Ask them to double check using the methods outlined there. Research their names using Google. Unless you want to hire the paid virus removal people of course.
