    Hi, My sons computer has a virus which has passed through AVG and Kerio
    it has played havoc with his computer forcing him to reformat 3 times, each
    time he does and installs a legit XP from cd the virus is back it seems to
    have stuck itself in the free space ans cant be shifted or even looked at,
    has anyone heard of such a virus or worm and does anyone know of a program that will just look at or security wipe the free space after XP is
    installed, any help would be most appreciated.

    1) try scanning at
    2) Is he doing a full reformat/reinstall, or just a repair install?
    3) boot from xp cd and run FIXMBR from the recovery console
