Heavy duty disk formatting program

Post by nuclearjock on Fri Jun 25, 2010 12:55 am

I did a windows XP repair and the AV Security Suite returned. So I've decided to completely re-install windows. I remember reading of a formatting program that does a very complete format removing all traces of malware that may have "embedded" itself on my hard drive and would survive a normal disk format.

Can anyone hook me up with the name of such a formatting utility?

I have used Kill Disk in the past. It writes 0's to your hard drive. You will have to boot to your OS cd and restart from scratch - new partition/format/reload.

Look here and read the info http://www.killdisk.com/downloadfree.htm
