    Possible virus infection


    I was stupid enough to plug into my computer an unknown drive. It had no files in it, but it weighed about 15GB, which is making me really worried. I unplugged it, restarted the computer and am now running a Windows Security full virus scan (the default Windows antivirus). What should I do?

    Infected by mail.ru virus

    I reinstalled Java, now its version is 64-bit. We have deleted and cleaned a lot of things. So I think I shouldn't think my PC is infected now. I thought silly about residual files, sorry for that. This infected virus disrupted my psychology. Anyway, is there any step to clean or do something else for harmful file or stuff in my PC?

    Thanks. Possible virus infection :)
