Sorry to bother you again. I have one more question - I had some infections/viruses in my computer in the past. If any of them are still lurking somewhere in the system, will they all be gone as well?

Also, when the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility screen appears, do I press 1 , 2 or 3 ???

We hope so.

If you are happy with the partitioning you have, press 2.
