If I were to load the Paragon Disk Manager from DOS, and run the command "Restore Hard Disk from Image" to restore a clean MBR/First tract, would this completely eliminate 100% ANY and ALL traces of malware that existed in the MBR/First tract? If not how can I eliminate all traces? (besides doing a full disk format) And besides the data in the partition and first tract/mbr, Can harmful malware exist anywhere else? (Harmful malware refers to any location on a HD that malware could activate itself on start up and cause damage) If the first question is true, and that data in the partition would be the only other area, then by deleting/formating the partitions and running the Restore HD MBR image command, this should wipe out all traces of any dangerous malware, correct? And lastly, to create a clean MBR, all you would need to do is install Windows XP, and it will create a new clean MBR and just immediately save the MBR/First track image using Paragon, would this work?
