Then whats the prob? The only thing you could do is disconnect from the internet, and then not go online for 2 months and hope he goes away/your IP changes.

No need to format. What you do is you d/l subseven. Install the trojan, then remove it using the subseven client. That simple.

After that, there should be NO problem.

Formatting to remove a trojan? thats like beating a fly to death with a sledgehammer.
