My first question;
Is it possible for a virus to survive a complete reformat?
I used the WidnowsXP install disk, deleted all partitions and installed windows on the unpartitioned space.
I'm correct that that does delete the entire HDD and does a completely fresh install of windows right?
Then why is the machine still acting up?

Here's the issues;
Lots of websites will not load and when i attemp to ping then in the command it times out.
Websites like www.yahoo.com, www.microsoft.com (I cant get to windowsupdate), msn.com, and many others.
Now the thing is, I was not going to post this because i did not think it was possible for a virus to still be on here untill a message poped up on me earlier.
While I was pinging www.microsoft.com a dialog poped up but i completely forgot what it said. All i know is that it was not supposed to be here and it said that my computer will be at wisk if i dont go to this website and download some crap.

All i did after refoprmatting was put in the Dell Resource CD and installed the network driver and my graphics card driver. Then attempted to go to windows update. Just like I do on all my computer and i never have these problems.

Maybe im not completely erasing the HDD?
I heard somewhere that if you take a magnet to your HDD it will take everything off it. Is that ok to do?

Please excuse my spelling mistakes, im extremly tired and im headed to bed now. Ill check this post in the morning. Thanks
That message i was talking about earlier it just poped up again now. Here is a screenshot: Remember, i have not downloaded anything after reformatting my computer, I only installed drivers off a DELL disk.
