Hi. Firstly may I say that this is a great website and thank the guys who help people out on here. I discovered the site recently when my wifes laptop became infected with Trojans. Whilst this did not cure the problems she was having I resolved it by wiping her hard drive and making a clean installation on her machine.
I also had problems with my PC recently but this was a hardware fault which meant that I had to buy a new hard disk and make a clean installation of my operating system on it. I now have the PC fully back up and running with my old hard disk as a Slave. Now, my old hard disk contains many files and data accumulated over several years. It was not giving me any particular problems and I am running Norton Internet Security 2004 and Norton Antivirus 2005 which are fully updated and detect no problems on my machine. However, following my wifes problems, I discovered from your site that Norton does not detect many problems that other software can. I would very much like to run a few scans on my old hard disk to thoroughly check it out so that my new clean operating system has no chance of getting infected from data/files that I all ready had on my PC. So I wondered if somebody could give me some good advice on what programs to download and use to scan my PC just to give it a thorough check up? Any advice would be appreciated.
