    What will happen if Windows partition is affected with virus in Mac?

    My Windows partition in Mac is completely affected virus now, so I thought I can boot via Snow Leopard but I am afraid if the virus will creep in Mac too if I boot? Will that happen? What should I do now? Can you please provide me some better solution for this? Thanks.

    Hi.................,


    This is a bad news that windows partition is effected by virus.

    You need to do a ----->
    * Rapid Format....this will delete all data.
    * Now have a antivirus and make it secured.
    * Do not download antivirus rather purchase it.

    -- Without format a antivirus can not handle the so huge task at once.
    -- So better to Format and then have antivirus.
    -- If it effect the system software then go for the software update.

    Thanks

    Dear Friend..

    There is no option left for you now except to boot your Mac because if you tried to open your Mac, then it is quite possible that the viruses will also enter in all the drive.
    Due to this, all the drives might be affected and they also corrupt or delete the data one by one.

    Right now, you have virus only in your partition drive and if you don't want to spread in other drives, then you have to reboot now.

    For this, just inset the Mac OS Snow Leopard CD in Disc Drive and boot the OS as we install the other OS,
    When the installation gets complete now, then just start your Mac Carefully and without open any other drive, just download or install an Anti-Virus like NORTON or ProtectMac for your MacBook.

    Just install Anti-Virus in your MacBook and start scanning your partition drive.
    When the partition drive scanning gets over, also install the other drive now and remove all the viruses if presents,

    NOTE:- AFTER OS INSTALLATION AND RESTARTING OF YOU MAC, NEVER OPEN ANY HARD DRIVE EXCLUDING THE C-DRIVER OR THE PARTITION DRIVE AS THERE MIGHT BE A CHANCE OF ENTERING VIRUS FROM C-DRIVE TO ANOTHER DRIVE, SO PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU MUST INSTALL AN ANTI-VIRUS AW WELL, Like AVG AND AVAST

    I hope all the information you have clear now,

    Thank you..

    the best way is to format your system

    so insert the os cd and format it and re install the mac

    then buy an antivirus and scan your device completely and fix all the bugs

    or you can delete that window partition
