Hi there! I had earlier posted a topic related to my Samsung CD-RW drive gone crazy n had been suggested to run a virus scan and so I did. Win32-Parite Virus was detected by Avast antivirus and I deleted all infected files as they couldn't be repaired. But, it didn't help as it infected again. This time(in fact 3 to 4 times now) I used the Avast virus remover tool to repair all the files. None of this really helps as the virus never says goodbye, it keeps coming after some time. Is there a way to effectively remove it. Also I heard a low level format can remove the virus and bring my hard drive to the condition when it was new. If this is true then how do I do it. I even wanted to do the format as I want to change my partition scheme. Is there any tool(freeware/shareware) available for this. Please tell me a way to get rid of this virus and to format my hard drive(an 80GB Seagate Barracuda).
