After doing some research I have decided that I am going to format and reinstall windows 7.
My two questions are:
This is a 2 HD machine. The HD1 had the OS. Planning on wiping HD1.
Should I clean the HD2 of all .exe's or completely wipe the HD2.
My concern is there are alot of personal files I would like to keep. Are all my videos, pictures, mp3's etc fine?
My guess is that it is all fine to leave, or that I should wipe all the exe's
Second questions is, how do I avoid getting rootkits in the future? This rootkit I got by trying to watch Borat on the internet for free....
I crush you....
So, assuming I forget not to do that in the future, a friend uses my comptuer, etc, how do I protect against rootkit infection effectively?
Thank you for your time. zee mosue
Oh, btw, I am currently downloading a linux livecd to see how clamav is going to handle the problem. My sense is it won't do the trick. Anybody know what to expect?
