My wifes laptop just went and I pulled her HD. I am putting it into an enclosure to backup pictures, work, and other important files. The HD is infected and I am unsure how to introduce it into the clean system safely. I do have virus projection, but is there some fail safes I should introduce? I have windows 7 with the xp virtual machine. Is there a way I can directly connect the drive to the VM and totally bypass the main OS?
