    I've never posted on one of these sites before and I know very little about this type of thing so please bear with me.

    I went travelling and stupidly forgot to lock one of my SD memory cards before putting it into a hostel computer (dumb I know!!!). Anyway, from what I could tell it turned the files into exe. files. When I put the card into my camera you can see all of the pictures as normal. I have just tried to put it into an old laptop I have and used AVG to scan it and it says it is infected with Win32/heur.

    Please advise what I can do. Is there any way to save the photos whilst removing the virus? One friend told me there might be an autorun file I have to re-write but I really have no idea where to begin! I would really love to get the pictures back if at all possible!

    If anyone could help that would be great!
