  1. I have a backdoor trojan on my system as my bank has told me my details have been leaked. I am planning on wiping my pc. Just want to know how it is possible to store all of my data onto cd writables and secondly by wiping will this trojan disappear?>

    Put a CD in the drive and write to it
    Many users these days are using USB flash drive instead

    Also instead of wiping, just remove the Partition during the initial Windows Setup (you will see this prompt)

    No the Partition remains

    Wiping (that I have done many times, even up to 7 passes) is not as good as removing the Partition ;)

    well I deleted it and created a new parititon.

    I have now installed but my screen is not moving smooth, its almost jumping, I think I have nvidia graphics card, where can I get the drivers?
