    1) How do you know ?
    2) Chances are that by the time you get around to it any files that weren't infected will be.
    3) Not really.


    It's nearly two weeks since I told you that a reformat was needed.
    By now I suspect that almost all your system files are infected.
    Every file that you move will be prone to infection.

    Virut is vicious, it really isn't worth taking the risk of transferring any files that may be infected.
