hi Techspot helpers, I recently got the Ramnit virus on my computer and have been advised by Broni, on the Techspot forum, that I have to format the HD and do a reinstall of Windows (link to other post http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/infected-with-vdpoxdbw-exe-ninjafdd-exe.182499/ ). In the next couple of days I hope to complete the migration of files and the reinstall my OS, but have a few questions: 1.I have a legitimate copy of XP, but don't have the disk, so was wondering if I can run the formatting and install from the Windows I386 folder? 2. Can this specific folder be scanned to ensure 100% that there is no virus (I understand from Broni that ramnit is very aggressive)? 3. Would it be better to copy the folder to a CD/USB and run the formatting/install from there or can it be done from the HD? 4. I have the Windows product key on a sticker on my computer, but do I need any other information from my machine before performing the formatting/install? Many thanks, James.
