Backstory; not hugely necessary but
So basicly what im asking is there any way for this sumbitch to hide on my external drive invisibly/latch onto another file or something for the ride without me finding it?
K so my buddy walks into my room the other day, says "Oh i need to get this econ assignment off my laptop for my class in an hour, and my flashdrive isnt working" and being the good guy i am i help em out,plug a pendrive into his lappy, grab the file,bring it over to my rig, plug in both sticks, do the transfer, badda bing badda boom-all done good to go
then the next day, comp starts locking up, error messages, bla bla typical trojan/worm/virus crap, ok so no problems, throw all my movies/music/games onto my external drive, pop in the winxp install disk, quick reformat type deal; good to go again right?
hour later same freakin problem, getting same error messages/lockups as before, so i boot into safemode and remove all the excess crap off the external HD except for the actual ISOs/MP3s/AVIs, my mouseaccel fix,and my desktop background, reformat late last night, go to the bar etc etc
Ive manually gone threw and checked each individual folder, turned on "show hidden folders" etc etc, cant find anything. Im running a kapersky scan right now, Im just worried because my last reformat it came back liek the sneaky bastard it is, and i dont want some gay error shit happening in the middle of a match,or my creditcard info being yankd by a keylogger or somethin ykno?
