    Rick.....When you say memory ......are you refering to the RAM ?
    If your computer is infected with Blaster and Sasser.....why dont you run the removal tools and get rid of them.

    Make sure you get your Anti Virus updated to protect your computer and get all the latest updates and patches from Micro Soft.

    If you don't know the answer, it isn't a dumb question.

    If you're talking about a card that contains memory without being powered then I'd say no, you're just spreading the infection and if you mean RAM chips then no it wouldn't be a problen coz as soon as the power is not supplied the data will be lost.

    However, RAM chips can keep a residual charge for over 24 hours after being removed. But this is most unlikely to be able to be transferred.
