I have reformatted many times due to an infestation of viruses and malware such as crs.exe, msvddr32.exe, restorer64_a, and many others. I have reformatted twice now and the virus/malware keeps coming back. I believe this is due to installing a couple of programs each time I reformatted with that were infected, but I'm not quite sure. Anyways, I'm not sure my computer did a complete reformat, but only reinstalled windows. When I've reformatted in the past, I recall changing the boot to CD first, putting in the Windows XP CD, and a black screen coming up with 'Press any key to boot from CD...' followed by a blue screen with the option to select the drive to partition. Instead, after I put the CD in I'm given the option of F to Format, R for Recovery, or Q to Quit. After I select F it goes to Windows Recovery, but I want to reformat and wipe everything. Is this the same process as the blue screen I remember with the option of selecting which drive to partition? Or am I just reinstalling windows and this could be why the virus/malware keeps coming back, because it was never actually gone? Thanks for any help.
