Since my old pc is acting weird, i will probably be doing this on my eee. I just want to make sure, how do i kill the whole HDD after this? I plan on using my eee after the test.

You could also use a boot and nuke disc

That came accross my mind Steve lol
I would just like to know exactly what viruses i am getting.
No doubt you'll get some good Vundo and Rootkits, not to mention a DNS hijacking sprinkled with a Bot takeover
Just don't get back on the Internet with the infected machine. Download your Antimalware tools on a clean CD first, then use it on the infected machine (offline).

Sergio,

One that I notice you don't have on your list is Comodo - I know it's known for it's Firewall but the current Internet security suite includes AV that's not bad at all
