My laptop has the following virus: worm.win32.netsky
from reading several other posts on here i see that too find out if my Maxtor has the virus i need to run a scan on it - on just the external hard drive. i can't use my laptop at all so i'm using another one. my question is if i run a scan on the Maxtor on another computer and my Maxtor has a virus, will the virus be transferred/copied/whatever to the laptop I am using?
Thanks for any help.

Your best friends should be:
Malwarebytes - free, do the extended search Malwarebytes.org
AVG free version (not free download)
With the drive connected, you can scan the external drives or any memory sticks.
Make sure you go to that web site... not something that sounds similar.
