HJTLOGS/Viruses/formatting question

By N1Hawk
Nov 24, 2006
  1. I've seen alot of people in here posting questions about viruses and HJT logs and other great things. My question is this: If you format the computer at low level won't that clean all the problems, viruses, and you would not have to do HJTLOGS and worry?

    That`s quite true. However, you`d also lose all the data on the hard drive and have to reinstall everything from scratch.

    A lot of people really don`t want to have to do that. Besides, most infections are easily dealt with.

    Regards Howard :)
