Comments: Cleaning your PC

First of all, great post and good info, thank you.

I took note of your issue with a renamed exe file due to infection. We have a couple of tools that may help in those cases. Our online scanner is available at and can be run if infection blocks exe files or hinders software installation. Our new, portable version is available at and can be run from a USB drive without software installation or internet access. Both tools are free for home/personal users.

Great post. I run 'em all...Windows, Linux, OS-X. I use Linux running IPTABLES on a dedicated PC for a firewall. Also a good place to store images and sound. I like an iMac bigtime. The best GUI built on top of *NIX, and Windows runs in a virtual machine just fine. I run Windows on a dedicated PC because I have to...I use TrendMicro, which seems to work. Windows will always be under attack. Fact of Life.
