It's a brand-new hdd (no it isn't, but the windows on it is), more likely than not that's what I'll do, but I'll start with a LLF (low level format), just been putting off the dreaded day long affair.

Use avast along with spybot and adaware... I have cleaned several peoples computers where norton failed by using these three pieces of software. Avast will do a boot scan before anything can startup on your computer, even windows.

Nice thing about spybot is that it does not allow registry changes. Maybe too late in this case but it does prevent future problems.
