Problem completely wiping HDD
I had some unusual things get on my computer, not sure what they were but it blocked access to various websites and a few other unusual things. I decided to do a clean install of XP, even deleted the partition and reformatted. But apparently windows seems to save a lot of stuff anyway, links from internet explorer, at least some of them were saved, and I still have blocked access to particular websites. Apparently XP looks for information on the hard drive from previous installs. Is there anything that can be done to totally wipe all information out... other than installing a brand spanking new hard drive? Thanks in advance for any info.
