Are hidden partitions REALLY hidden?

    Hello :D,

    This is my first post, though I am really only here to ask a couple of questions. ;)

    I recently discovered a trojan virus on my system which has left me in a heightened state of paranoia as I have lot of work sitting on my hard drive. Fortunately I appear to have eradicated the virus and fixed my firewall settings (I hope). I have also taken the added precaution of purchasing Partition Magic and using this to `hide` the partitions which contain my most important work when I am on the net. However in my heightened state of paranoia I am still worried that someone who had managed to hack in to my system would somehow still be able to access them without my knowledge. I know there is something called remote agent, but that is a DOS program. Would someone be able to install and hide that on my system and access it without my knowledge?

    I realise I`m probably worrying about nothing but I would appreciate any feedback from anyone who would know for certain.

    Thanks very much.
