Thank you for your input everyone. Sorry it has taken a while to get back to this but this morning I will run diskpart and then continue with a clean install of Windows 7. Will post back when complete.

My goodness.

Sorry to hear this man. Good work catching it though. Now I see why she's an ex.

Diskpart is running but I have a question: I read that a keylogger can hide in memory. After diskpark finishes and I partition the hard drive, how can I delete any files/data in memory? Or will erasing the hard drive remove all memory files? Thanks.

If you're using the "clean all" command in diskpart, it's gone.

What you do need to be careful of is the media you backed up and are planning to restore.

Okay, thanks.

Here is the situation. I bought the computer loaded with Vista 64. It was a couple of months before Windows 7 hit the market so the retailer/mfg. offered a free upgrade to Windows 7 64. I got the upgrade disk from the mfg. a couple of months later and installed it. It is that disk I am using to do a clean intall. Is this okay?

You're welcome.

Did the Win 7 upgrade disc come with it's own key? If so, here's a guide.

Yes, Win 7 came with its own key. "Clean all" is running now. When complete, I will partition the hard drive and then return to the Win 7 installation screen.

Reinstall of Win 7 just completed. Windows activated with no issues.

This is the best support forum on the web. Mega thanks to everyone who contributed to this thread. I get nervous doing things like this but the instructions in the tutorials are so clear, even I can follow them.

I have already installed free Avast and am back to using the Win 7 firewall as a member earlier suggested.

Premature nirvana.

Just looked at my Windows folders/files. Some are dated 7/13/2009, 7/14/2009, 8/26/2009 and many files that reflect the recent install date of 2/28/2011. However, there is one file, explorer.exe, with a date of 10/31/2009. Its size is 2.803 Kb but on Task Manager the Memory column shows 56,752 K. There is also a previous version of explorers.exe dated 7/13/2009, which makes sense. No other file has a date of 10/31/2009 so it makes me suspicious.

Do I have a problem?

Nope, you're all good to go.

Just some proof to ease your mind.
