I've had this for few months. The only thing i was able to do is to pay for
virus protection but it is so expensive.
Is there a way to find those hidden files? Do you think they are in the
db or in the files?
I am moving out to another server right now. Is there a good process to do
this without copying the virus along with the files?

Thanks for your help
