Hi! I agree that a malware section might get more people interested in the forum and draw new members.
I read this thread and I'm really interested! Community activity...
Here's my 2 cents about malware and infected computers, however. I live in a retirement center and help seniors with computers for free. I have cleaned a ton of infected PC's and here's my theory. Malware hunters are over rated. I have several programs I use. Here's my list and the order I use them.
Malwarebytes anti-root kit
ESET on line scanner
Malwarebytes Free again
Maybe one more on line scanner( TrendHouse Call) and Combo Fix as a last resort!
If the PC is still infected and not running right, I save the data and restore to factory settings. Some times that is the best and quickest way when a PC is really infected with root kits and the really bad guys.
It works for me, but I really like the idea of the forum starting a malware section and helping members learn how to clean infected computers!
That would be great! Count me in!!
