Posted by Your Fuzzy God on Dec. 16 2005,18:38I got this machine in on Tuesday. I swear to you the pictures are not retouched (they are straight screen captures). I thought the Linux community could help me out. Getting rid of the viruses was the easy part; now I need to know how to deal with my emotional scarring.

38K virused/trojan files in the Windows dir!!!!!
1. Backup any files you want/need to save
2. DBAN all 0's
4. Put antivirus/spyware from get go
5. Restore data
Anything that has been that ratphuched still has stuff hidden!
Dont risk it you will be fixing it again shortly

In the dark, late at night..by yourself!
Doom III is scary!
Posted by Your Fuzzy God on Dec. 16 2005,23:15Thanks Awwwwwwwwww...::Punch::, but I already fixed it; I cleaned and deleted 60324 files/registry entries. I don't like to reformat because there's no fun in it, I prefer to track the virii down bounty hunter style. If the virus can hide from me, it's too scared to ever come out of hiding again anyway. Kinda like these 2 guys -->
