Disinfecting a PC… part 8



All right, now it’s time to give ad-aware a spin. I like being able to use several spyware scanners to get full coverage and cleaning. Ad-aware and spybot s&d are usually my first two choices. Realize that I’ve already taken a pass at this machine with AVG, BHODemon (for the browser helper objects) and Spybot S&D. Ad-aware finds a total of 700+ items.

Ok – to be fair 434 of those are tracking cookies and most of these items have multiple hits… so 700+ might be a bit overambitious.

Anyway… Most of the finds were registry entries or tracking cookies. Some were stranded files from the malwares. None of the memory resident processes were malware.

Conditional scan result:

New critical objects: 205
Objects found so far: 732

The system seems to be doing well… time for Windows updates.
