Speaking about getting help, NEVER use the Geek Squad from Best Buy. They are being paid by the FBI to snoop for deleted files.

It depends on where the malware is. If it gets deep enough then you are right. There are somethings that will plant themselves in in things like the system clock and the bios, you pretty much have to kill them with fire to get rid.

Right now the in thing seems to be hijacking some of the WiFi enabled household appliances. Fridges, light bulbs even. There is sod all protection on some of them and they can be used for denial of service attacks.
