Wipe the drive, and reinstall the OS from the original installation
media.

Backup what data you can, and then be careful when bringing it back
onboard after the "flatten and rebuild" I suggested above.

I agree.  Especially since it was noted "Windows 7 Ultimate" and thus could NOT
have been
on the PC that long.

It is also indicative that Jason has BAD HABITS and doesn't practice Safe Hex.
Failure to
take proper precautions to secure his system (and his data) will just lead Jason
right
back into the situation he is now faced with.  Jason needs to LEARN from this
experience !

Yeah, I'm not one to suggest "flatten & rebuild" right off the bat in
most cases. Many times it is much too drastic, but considering the OS
and the "very badly infected" statement I thought it the best option.

Jason may also want to consider keeping disk images (or slipstreaming)
as backups as well as regular data backups - this *will* happen again
and it is good to familiarize oneself with recovery options having
failed in the implementation of preventative measures.

..and then do it again next week when it is re-infected. Keeping Windows
clean is a full-time job.

Jason needs to google up:  practice safe hex

It's the new Windows antimalware paradigm - focusing on clean-up rather
than on prevention or avoidance.

I haven't found this to be so. I do take all the normal precautions and
have never been bothered by a virus. I also keep the system fully backed
up using a combination of imaging and file backup.

You said... "I do take all the normal precautions" which means to some degree or
another
you ARE practicing Safe Hex !

I think BTS was alluding to the prevention aspect, which *is* a full
time job (and not just for Windows). Just having a set of good recovery
plans does not address the malware issue properly - you need
preventative measures.

..which to me means you are already practicing safe hex, right? My point
of course was, if you (the collective you) do *not*, it's gonna be all
bolloxed up again shortly.

Friend:  "My computer is running really slow."
Me:      "Is your anti-virus program up-to-date?"
Friend:  "Uhhh .. no, the license expired last year."
Me:      "Okay, I'll be over tomorrow to reformat your hard drive."

Sure, I've never been bothered by one either. I started using Windows
with version 2.0 and did so through Windows 2000. Never got XP or any
newer. However, all those versions were locked down tight.

In 2006, I made the switch.

Re: Best setup to clean pc



Exactly what do you mean by "very badly infected"? Especially
with windows 7.

Hi,

Having heard "very badly infected" the only thing I would do, is
backup, format and reinstall.
Don't waste valuable time, trying to clean up such a mess. Thinks
could become worse.

Good luck.

WARNING! Warz Alert! Wow, a cracked NOD32 with FREE FREE FREE download.
My old marketing prof said long ago that FREE was the most powerful
word in the English language. But it is also frequently the most
dangerous. Software should be downloaded only from the official source.
Warz hack sites are often corrupted. The pros here know this but just
for general information it bears repeating.
