Noooop,,,, Win32 Sality is a virus which attacks all the boot locations shortcuts of all ur partitions...
Like system volume information and Recycle bin which r generally hidden in os as protected system files.

No win32 virus infect the system unless they r executed. If u insert the cd don't open it directly by double clicking rather explore it everytime u hav 2 open or just follow the auto run menu option 2 open folder 2 view files.
