I am attempting to reinstall windows 7 on my infected PC (with the shortcut virus) using a fresh USB drive. The USB drive is NOT infected and contains the ISO.
will the USB stick I'm using get infected if I use it for reinstalling ?
I plan on inserting the USB drive in its port immediately after I restart the device so I can boot into it right away.
I also plan on booting my PC from the USB drive to start the process without ever opening it from My Computer.
