I recently got a trojan on my system which popped up the "Your computer is infected with a dangerous virus" message.
I successfully cleaned this with Spybot, but my external USB drive has now gone mad... If I connect it, I can see it in Device manager, and after a while it appears in Explorer. However, I cannot open it to see any files (it stops explorer from responding). It also slows the rest of my system down when plugged in. If I remove it, all is good.
Any ideas? I've got clean scans from Spybot, PCTools, and registry mechanic. I can't scan the drive as I can't get to it, but my mac (which normally reads the drive with no problems) states that "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer".
When you plug it in Windows Mounts he drive just as Linux does, That how the PC reads it then pops a box up asking what you want to do. looks like the Virus as corrupted the Boot sector on the drive, you may be able to sort it with a Disc tool. Like Seagate Seatools program
