I've walked the walk with askey127 and still have a rootkit or a bootkit. Even after scanning and whacking and quarantining damn near every executable on my drive, the rootkit still is working. OK. I really believe my system is dead. I need to regen it.
How do I wipe the MBR for a fresh install of XP? I'm collecting the install disks for the applications I need and will soon have the mobo drivers required for a sysgen. I don't want to see this monster again--we never got rid of it. New MBR--it's back. What will wipe the sucker off?
I want to take the HD back to factory new. If it's as simple as letting the winXP Pro disk have a rip at it, fine. Is that enough?
