I recently had a scare with a virus and I feel like I'd have more peace of mind if I went nuclear and just wiped my computer. I'm using a Samsung Windows 7. I want absolutely no trace of anything left, so I can be assured the problem has gone. History, old files, the lot - I want it all destroyed.
My question is - If I get the engineer to totally uninstall and reinstall my OS, will this definitely and irrevocably wipe all the previous data off my system?
My stuff is all well backed up, so I'm not worried about losing files. I just want a completely new start! Will an OS uninstall-reinstall do the job?
Thanks, and apologies if this is an obvious question - I don't know much about this area of things.
