I have been meaning to reformat my computer, but obviously have been putting it off since it takes so long. When I was browsing around in my second HDD, I found an old text file with some notes I kept, and I found a weird cryptic message that I never remember putting down. Was someone able to access my files? i don't know, and the act would be weird since that was all I noticed, and I am very careful, but you can never be 100% sure. So I reformatted the second HDD, and then I ran my "system restore disk" for the first HDD. I removed my second HDD because the restore disks don't touch the second HDD. If there is some sort of malware or rootkit on the second drive (the restore disk would clear out the primary drive) would a windows format clear it too? I put the data from the second drive onto a flash drive. What should I do? Remember, the only evidence I have is a cryptic message added in a text file I had. I am running both a HIPS and AV/Antispyware with returnil.
