Agreed - but have the actually INFECTED my computer or are they just things that are lying dormant that my anti-viral & anti-malware scans have found ? (!)

sometimes it is wise to run spybot (anti-spyware) and anti-virus (or multiple virus scanner) at the same time....

Can Windows XP installation partition get infected ? (on a Lenovo/Thinkpad T60)

Hi

 

Is it technically possible for the special Windows XP installation partition (that came with my Lenovo T60 laptop) to become infected with a virus?

Cheers

Hi Ship,


It is possible only when the partition is made visible to the OS by disabling the security for the pre-desktop area in the BIOS otherwise far-fetched.


Hope it helps.
