  2. Yes you are able to, after you reinstall the OS.

    But I will recommend when you use the recovery partition in the C to reinstall the OS( all the loptop have), disconnect the 2nd HD if you can, because it also has been infected by the virus too.
  3. If you reinstall windows, and wipe the partition of the c drive,and inatall windows onto that drive, the D drive should work fine after the install.
