    Yesterday, about 3 hours after reformatting, i installed a program (which by my fault, I forgot to scan :( )

    Immediatly, i had loads and loads of AVG popups, hundreds of processe's running, the option to view hidden files was disabled, when i click on my computer drive it said it was being used by another program, and basicly my computer is now being overturned by hundreds of different viruses. Every few minutes or a so, a different process will pop up and more viruses will appear.

    When i received this virus, my dad's external hard drive with all our backups was plugged in and has been infected. I have reformated 3 times in 2 days and when i plug it in on a new machine, it infects my pc.

    I have got so many viruse's , i havent managed to write there names down.

    I want to know how i can clear the viruses off this external hard drive, just some info on this:

    • It has the same " being used by other program"
    • There has been no new exe or changes made to it
    • Here is my hijack this log: (btw, this was taken a few mins ago, more malware are added to this everytime that process runs):

    I have now solved this problem. I found a value in the registry which manually changed it so that i could view hidden files (because the virus disabled it)

    After i did this, i found an autoplay file which play auto.exe (the trojan) when i click on C:/
    I just removed that.

    I am fixed.
    I reformatted my pc and plugged in the infected external hard drive again. There was no infection, none of the virus files created, none of the process's added, no virus alerts or anything happening because the auto.exe was removed.
