Greetings, This is my first post. I have a HP laptop that has become infested because it was run without any kind of virus protection. I want to completely wipe the disk and do a clean install of XP. I have not done this sort of work since the first version of Win2K or RedHat 2.X I first went to a cmd window to start FDISK but no luck. Is FDISK no longer available? I booted into the bios but did not see anything there to help. After some Googling I went to My Computer/Manage/Disk Management but I'm not sure where to go from there. I want to completely format the hard drive and start with a clean build. Guidance? Suggestions? Budweiser?
