I notice you've got 320Gig of HDD storage. What do you store on that?

LOL! Maybe... nah. It is true though - porn has the most viruses on it. Stop all downloads the moment you notice if they have embedded links in them; if they bring up a Internet Window when you start them.

Downloaded Films if you must know. Gladiator, Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, Around the World in 80 Days, Troy... other crap like that.

Update.

Well I shoved the drive into my moms laptop and found that somehow the filesystem was totally wiped out. It no longer recongnizes as an ntfs drive. So I will create a new partion on it and then see If I can install windows on it after that.

A few more question, is there a virus that can totally corrupt you file system in a matter of thirty seconds? I know here in the US a stupid senator from my state wants to put mp3's out there that will destroy your hard drive if you download it.

Also i broke one of the pins off of it just a few minutes ago but it still works okay. What happens when you break a pin off, will it slow down?

I also lost a weeks worth of work so now I have to play catch up. I am going to get another drive that is exactly the same for backup purposes. I should have backed up my website on my other drive. Its just that I havent encounter a serious hard drive problem like this before. But I have learned my lesson. Dang hackers. I hate you. Die.

Well I am having a hard time getting this to format Ill try again tommorow. This is probably a fatal problem for my hard drive.

Right now I am going to find the bastard who did this to my computer. There is going to be hell to pay.

Yes a virus could destroy the file system in a second. But if your having trouble re-formatting it, it's more likely to be that your hard drive just failed.

Well what happens when you break a pin off I have never done that but in all the melee of switching it around everywhere i accidently bend one and it broke.

I dont think it just died becuase of the curcumstances which were right before it died. With the error I recieved from a place that is known to have a virus.

Even though i did break a pin off it still was having trouble formatting before i did that.

I think I just might throw this one at the wall even though its only a few months old and go and get a few cheap ones.

It all depends on which pin but, Your drive needs to find the trash.

Why not get two drives and Raid 0 them, There's not much difference in price, buying say 2x80Gb drives as aposed to 1x160Gb drive. And you'll double the speed.
