I have executed this 3 times already. It's hard to determine if anything is happening. There is no message, just a blinking cursor. Is the process going on or not? Is there a way to tell? The HD is a 640GB Samsung HM640jj. I ran "clean" and it terminated almost immediately and it said successfully, but I don't know a lot about this stuff. I'm doing all this because I inadvisedly let a party run some code on my computer with logmein123, and now I'm paying the price, spending my day (and on into tomorrow, etc.) reinstalling everything.
I could run DBAN, but if "clean all" terminates successfully, I obviously won't have to. The concern, for the most part, seems to be that there was a rootkit placed on the system, and I want to be sure that going forward my computer will be secure.
Is it normal for DISKPART> clean all to be followed by a blinking cursor for hours, no indication of progress, nothing??? Thanks for help.
