Windows 7: Help removing virus located in winsxs folder

Hmm, although I hate to do it I guess I'll have to. There's just one folder that I need. I'll move it to a flash drive. How should I go about checking that file for infections?

Oh okay I'll give it a try. Do you think that the virus may have infected my other computer since I have transferred files between them? Also Since I need this one folder, is it okay to take it with me to the other computer?

nobody can gives a sure answer, but if you see it also to start to react strange(get slow, many apps fail to open, changments to your backround programs) is very possible, many viruses they are in your pc and you dont even understand it, we can just hope to didnt infect

K, I will probably just end up formatting and putting on a new copy of windows. One thing that I really need to know is if it is safe to move one of my folders to another computer.

Any thing you save from the infected computer is most likely infected also. Any other computer that you were networked with is most likely infected also. You are not dealing with some little toy infection when you spank it it will go away. This is one bad ass rootket that has probably infected more places in your system that your anti virus scan found.

Come on now lets get serious. Because no one knows except the people who created it and a few experts that work in the anti virus field. For sure it wasn't created to make your computing life better.
