PC Formatting
« on: Jul 13, 2009, 09:04 AM »
HI, I have a Dell Dimension E520
I am planning to format it using the original restore disk it came with.

Do you think this action will also delete any spyware and viruses?

It should as long as you do format it.

I believe the Dell disk has an option to repair or format and reinstall, make sure you select to format the drive.
