Hello
Recently I was setting up wireless for a customer. Found a piece of malware vb.cc I think. checked
hosts, registry, accounted for any processes I didn't know, ran anti-virus, rootkit revealer,
couldn't see any further signs of compromise, and the PC ran as well as I might have expected,
broadband running fine too. I informed the customer anyway of the risks, feeling bad like I was
fishing for more work I told them they were probably perfectly safe but couldn't be 100% without
doing more work or a full service on the box. And left it up to them.

As they used the machine for work and personal banking they preferred a full service (should always
work better after a clean rebuild anyway).

5430 infected files.

Kind Regards
Colin
