    Firstly, you shouldn't have used any files from infected computer, which you can simply download again (clean).
    Then, if those other "installation files" were not legit either, you shouldn't have used them either.
    And....my speech said very clearly:
    Even personal files should be always scanned with at least two virus scanners before putting them back on clean computer.

    Clearly, you put some infected files back.

    Firstly, make sure to disconnect external drive.
    Disconnect ethernet cable, so there is no internet connection.
    Format drive, install Windows.
    Make sure, Windows firewall is turned on.
    Now, you're ready to reconnect ethernet cable and get all updates and install AV program.
    Then, scan your secondary drive with AVG and Dr.Web (ftp://ftp.drweb.com/pub/drweb/cureit/drweb-cureit.exe). Dr.Web sees Virut. It doesn't cure it, since it's impossible, but it'll see it.
    Reconnect your external drive and scan it too with same two tools.

    I prefer, you start new topic, because this one is titled "Not curable - Virut".
    I don't want anyone to get mixed up.

    Thank you :)
