If an active partition is infected with virus will it infect other partitions also?

by on March 10, 2010

Q: If the active partition (for example Drive C) is infected with virus will it infect other partitions also? For example C Drive gets infected or crashes. After reformatting the C drive, will the infection return as the other partition on the hard disk is not touched?

    Every virus is different, so I’d suggest just doing a full system scan to make sure.

    I suggest Microsoft Security Essentials (free)
