I have a computer that's old and infected.
I want to repurpose it, and will replace the dinky, old drive, with a new, bigger, faster drive, and reinstall from scratch. Also swapping out ram.
How common are bios/ram viruses? i.e. I just want to make sure if I do the above without clearing out the current maleware/virus/trojan, the new install won't have the old crap there.
Thank you for your time!
