Plugged a usb stick into laptop and Norton said it had found Heur.Advml.C and classes it as medium risk. Today turned on the laptop and Norton removed W32.Sillyfdc and said to restart. After restarting two files had appeared on my desktop called .inf which I didn’t open. Having googled W32.Silly it seems it can spread to other computers via the network. I had another pc switched on at the time which beeped. To be on the safe side I have reset both to factory settings (one is windows 10 one is Windows 7) and also unplugged the router for now. We have umpteen pc’s in family house so a bit worried. Also I repair pc’s and have a load of those to test. Anyway - the factory reset is via the inbuilt recovery drive so is that enough? Or could the worm have got into the recovery partition? I have a feeling that the Heur thing may have carried a lot more with it than W32.Sillyfdc. Also read on a Synantec advice sheet the W32.Sillyfdc that it can compromise router and network. Is there anything I can use to virus scan the router and network? Which of course would mean turning it and a pc back on again so feeling a bit stuck. Both those two pc’s (netbooks) had nothing much on them so wiping the drives would be possible but need to know I have this contained before using my main pc chock full of important files. Thanks
