two operating systems?

  lewis187 23:38 18 Oct 2004

i recently went from xp pro to xp gome and i thought i would have completely restored factory setting tho there are still old un wanted files present and when i do virus scans it scans a part of the pc that is not called what i named my pc and i seem to pick up more spy ware than normal even tho i am running zone alarm whic usually stops it and i wondered if it may be possible tht i have to operating systems on, with one running at same time as mine and it being the old xp not uninstalled properly and if so, or ther is anything i can do to get rid of this old information and files n old computer name etc? thanks

zone alarm cannot stop spyware which comes in as part of something else. the only certain way of getting back to a clean 1 op sys install is to format the hard disk. Make sure everything you need is backed up first.
