yikes, re-installing the OS is a major pain in the butt and usually not necessary to fix PC problems.


One effective way of discouraging hackers is to setup am account to access windows and have it password protected. Then change the password every day. It's a little job, but it really messes with the hackers Wink | ;)

Another way is to not have your computer online all the time.

If you are set on scanning, try the spybot search&destroy engine. It's pretty good, and it does effectively remove a lot of hacker hooks, so running it every day can really cut down on unwanted code running on your pc.
