Re: question about malicious software

said by Mina:

After it was all done and the OS was installed it just seemed to me that an unusual amount of hd space was missing.

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong but malware wouldn't use a large amount of disk space.

This isn't to the OP's question, norwegian See Profile's post reply seems a good answer to that.
re amount of space that malware can be responsible for - if malware creates a hidden drive, the amount of space is only limited by the size of the hidden drive irrespective of the file size of the malware that created the drive.
