    I have a problem with my WP. It is infected somewhere and must have a security problem because after I clean the infected files it keeps coming back. It has killed 2 computers so far. My blog is installed as http://www.blog.website.com Can I just delete the subdomain altogether and start new?

    If you delete all of the files from the web host and delete the database, this will remove everything related to the WordPress install.

    If someone gained access to your hosting account they might have changed other files as well though.

    I keep removing the script and setting the security higher. I don't know what else to do. I'm going to delete the database and reinstall WP in another location. I've already changed my passwords too. It could have been an unsecured file from a theme or a plugin that was added. I just don't know where it keeps coming from.
