|It seems I have some kind of a virus that makes my computer into a zombie. Whenever I try to scan the HD the virus will hide itself. If I try to boot from the CD to reformat the HD and load a fresh copy of windows it won't let me. It goes straight to the HD to boot, if I hit F12 to select how I want to boot it won't let me choose. I am only allow to boot from the HD.|
I took the infected HD and put it in another computer and I was able to delete the data and do a quick formatting of the HD, but it seems that there is a combination of factors that are infected in my system, because the new install is behaving in the same way as before.
When I did the fresh Windows 7 install, the process took longer than normal, at times it appeared that the system was not doing anything. What I imagine is that the virus was loading itself in the HD again or that the virus does not get removed with a quick formating, but I did not see an option in Windows 7 for a low level formatting.
Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can handle this problem.
Thank you in advance for all the input that all of you may provide.
