True, if you happen to have at least a glimpse of idea that this is an acronym.  8) But since the thread was very heavy on the IT-technical side, the OP might have thought it was some very special IT word, known only the godfathers of AV-technology...  ;D

Hello all. I've been successfully scanned my laptop using Dr.Web scanner, and deleted the infected files. It's really a good program, I think. And then I formatted my disk, and installed a new Windows 7 Ultimate. Now I have some questions:

1. Um, I just found this out after I installed a new OS. It's so hard to download those software installers, since I hardly have a time because of my college. I know you've already told me that it's better to download a new software installer, but I ask, why? Dr.Web does not show it's infected, but could viruses and malwares infect a software installer? And, silently so that even Dr.Web can't find them?

2. Is it possible for viruses/malwares to run in safe mode? I am afraid even if I boot in safe mode and plug in my usb flash drive, it's still got infected by the viruses/malwares.

3. And finally, could viruses/malwares infect the files inside a .rar archive (passworded and non passworded)? What about .zip and .7z? Because I have some drivers in a .zip archive, and I hope viruses/malwares could not infect them. And about the .rar archive, I heard it somewhere on the net.

I thank you very much for your help till this day, and I hope you guys could help me some more. :)

Yep, that's exactly what I was thinking. :D
