That was for my C, D, E, F drives. (Those 4 partitions are on my 3 internal
physical hard disks.)
I see now, to my horror, that my two backup partitions (on an external
300GB maxtor firewire hard disk) are also heavily infected with Win32/Virut.
Sigh. This virus is SO damn invasive! :-( It took AVG an hour to disinfect
the drives (by moving most of the exe files to the vault; it couldn't repair
them). But AVG doesn't check for inserted iframes in asp, aspx, php, htm,
and html files; so I have to use NoteTab to search and erase the iframes.
Several more hours, I imagine. Sigh. At least I can multitask while it's
doing it. And sleep. By the time I wake up, hopefully it'll be finished.
