That way you will be sure to get rid of any rootkits that may exist on your system.

If you have any questions about the tutorial, please ask.
Good choice, khalitzy

The only thing I recommend in cases where a Rootkit might exist is to clean the drive in diskpart, not just delete all partitions before installing. Read the tutorial, ask questions and when you're ready, simrick, I, or another member can help you through the process. It's fairly straight forward and the tutorial covers all the bases - that might be why it seems daunting to some people.

For now

Clean Boot Windows 10

If you have another means (phone, tablet, another PC) to communicate with members on your thread - that would be great.
