OK!I got two computers. One's workin and the other isn't. The one that is workin needs a tune-up bad, and the other one that isn't workin, well...it isn't workin. Now, the reason that the first one stoped workin is cause i somehow got that 'welchia worm32' or somthing like that. So i went to the site that had that tool to remove it, downloaded it, and it said it was removed. Good Deal right?! NO, since then it died. Crashed and burned. So i got my girlfriend's computer up and runnin, and bought a new 80 GIG drive for it. Well aparently ive infected This computer also by downloading the same music software on it. That's how smart i am with computers. Anywho, to make a long story short, I know very little about computers, but i'm a quick learner but bad speller. I want to learn how to start from scratch. I wanna use the motherboard from my computer(the one that's broke) and the 80 GIG hard drive, and various componets from this computer(my girlfriends), the one that's running. The reason that i wanna do this is because this computer is prety old, and the one that's mine is fairly new, with ALOT better parts init.
Now i'm to understand that ANY VIRUS OR WORM only attaches itself to the Hard Drive. Is this Correct?, If so, then a simple F-Disk is in order. Only, i'm sure that it's MUCH more complicated than that.Basicly, Is there a site that can run me through the whole process of building a computer from the ground up. From the buying process, to where every single last wire is connected to. I'm sure there are books on the subject, but if something doesn't work, and the book doesn't cover it, then i'm in trouble and im just gonna end up right back here, on the computer. OR, Can ANYONE give me a rundown, or a checklist of things that i need to do just to get this Hard Drive in that computer? I do have a Copy of WindowsXP. If ANYONE can help me, lemme know. I appriciate anything.
