Sometimes *but RARELY* store bought cds can have viruses already on them. I would suggest reporting this to the software company *they should have a technical support number somewhere on the box or manual* and getting a replacement copy of the software you bought.
I know floppy disks can, but can store bought cds?
I installed new software on my computer last week. After the installation, I found a bloodhound virus in my computer. Norton said it could not be repaired, but I was able to delete it.
I am unable to use my new software, I believe due to the virus. (Pages won't open). I am wanting to use another person's computer to use the software, but am unsure if the virus could have attached itself to the cds somehow. Can these cds become infected and pass this virus into other computers? There is one installation cd, and 2 data cds. They are not rewritable.
Thanks for any help!
