    I bought a new computer and will add the old hard drive as slave on
    the new system. I have had viruses in the past. And I suspect I
    could have a virus still on my hard drive that is not detected. How
    do I make sure it is totally clean before adding it to my new
    system? I have access to it by way of a network right now and am
    scanning it through the network. I found so far one Trojan, and
    still scanning. Any ideas?

    That is not the problem. I have Norton on my old computer, But I know
    sometimes if you have been infected its hard to clean up your
    system. I suspect there might be a problem. I can't select any
    scan locations from Norton anymore. But the schedule scans still
    operate fine. Its proof enough that its compromised, since I found
    now 2 viruses and one Trojan, by scanning through the network. tx
