If virus has infected your hard drive MBR and partition table (boot sector) wich has windows 7 installed on it do you have to low level format the hard disk or partitioning again the hard drive wil be enough
if any computer with windows 7 is infected with a virus and if the virus has infected the MBR and partition table do you have to use low level format program to clean the hardware or there is no need at all to low level format it.
I have friends hoe has computer repaire store,hoe says that sometimes virus infects MBR and partition table en you have to erase this first boot sector with low level format to clean it from virus.
but I read in a book that when you partition a hard disk it creates the MBR and partition table which called first boot sector.
so I think if partitioning creates the MBR and partition table , will be not enough partitioning again the hard drive which is infected with virus ( MBR +partition table) wil clean this virus from the first boot sector. am
I right or wrong? if I am right then you don't need to low level format the hard disk.
