    Default How do you format your hard drive?

    please don't laugh at me i'm not very computer-savy. but my PC caught a virus where every folder in My Documents duplicates a copy of itself inside which is only actually a link to My Documents and Norton can't seem to detect it....

    Don't format your entire computer. Use an online virus scanner that doesn't suck aka. Not Norton Not Mcaffee.

    http://www.kaspersky.com/scanforvirus.html for the specific file.

    http://www.google.com/url?sa=U&start...ro.com/&e=9797 for everything.

    Formatting = waste of time and sometimes the Base System doesn't install so you're screwed really bad if you do something wrong when formatting.
