    Upon removing the hard drive and placing it into another computer, I scanned
    it with anti-virus programs and it was infested!

    Are you using StopZilla ?

    You later posted "Upon removing the hard drive and placing it into another computer, I

    Infested with what and when the hard disk was reinstalled did it correct the problem ?

    NOTE: When you scan a hard disk in a surrogate platform, it will be examining the OS and
    Registry of the surrogate platform and not correct changes made to the OS on the affected
    hard disk.
