Deleting virus without deleting files?

  User-1227197 17:27 25 Nov 2008

Dear all,

On a recent trip to India my USB memory stick got infected by a virus (Win32...) with all the pictures from my trip on it.

Is there any way I could get rid of virus without loosing my files?

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Best regards

What Antivirus on your System?

Just plug in and tell your Antivirus to scan and clean.

I've got AVG 8.0.

I know that i can plug in and clean. But that's not what I want. By cleaning my antivirus will delete my files (pictures) and I want to avoid this.

Any ideas?

My antivirus (Avast) gives three options

move to chest

If I remember AVG used to give the same.
If they wont clean then there is no choice except to delete
