I did my first build this year and I got hacked last week. My computer is glitching unable to use microsoft and other programs. I want to start from scratch, Since im doing that I would like to set up OS on the SSD instead of the HHD.
this time around after its all said and done i will save the pc to an early point. SinceI have no saved earlier point.
So How do restore this computer
Think you have been hacked? Then dont wait and do a clean install of windows formatting every single data partition on you drive.
That is the best way you can protect yourself . Also run a good Internet security software like AVG/Kaspersky/Avast etc with a good firewall.
Well you can download the iso file from microsoft itself as you have the original key you can activate windows later after clean install.
Download link: https/www.microsoft.com/en-in/software-download/windows10ISO
Choose your exact version.
Do a clean install and I mean wipe your HDD,SSD clean not just factory reset(backup any import data only).
Then run an internet security and not just an antivirus(the free stuff) get a paid license of a good Internet security.
When you are custom installing windows there will be an option showing you all the disks available on your PC
In that window there will be something like show advanced tools or something.
You will find all options including deleting and formatting partitions.
Your SSD will not be labelled as SSD instead it will show you the disk number only and also the name of the drive such as WDxysekjfd etc if it is a WD harddisk etc. You have to carefully identify which is your SSD from the name given and the size.
Hope it was helpful.
