Recently my computer got infected with some spyware that I couldn't quite remove. It installed the program PSGuard everytime I turned on my com. I managed to disable it but it still lurked in my registry and I couldn't delete it for some reason. So I decided to format my com.
After formatting my com, I got infected within a minute again. I didn't even open Internet Explorer. I set the computer to format and let my computer run while I went to do other stuff. I came back and I saw my C: with some of those "free virus scans" or "free spyware removal tools" installed in my folders.
My friends say that it may be because the spyware before I formatted infected my motherboard...is that even possible? Help would be appreciated, this is the first time for me where formatting doesn't solve the problem :confused:
note: I formatted correctly. I boot on xp cd, deleted my old partition, created a new one, formatted the partition and installed xp there.
