ok, i ran clamav from the systemrescuecd i had.
i mounted the partition (which was windows).
after 301 mins, it finally gave me a result of 19 infected files.
did clamav remove the 19 infected files. I have a sneaking suspicion that it didnt as the hdd is ntfs.
but after a quick search, mount said that it was mounted r/w!
as a final test i decided to make a directory, which it failed to do.
can i safely say that the 19 infected files were not removed?
if so then how can i remove them?
