I am cleaning up a mess some guys in the back did with their computer. I have never seen something so stuffed with adware and viruses before. It wasd so bad our ISP blocked all our outbound mails.
Anyways, I think i got all the viruses off the machine, but i still have some sort of zany adware that none of the normal adware bots seem to detect.
All I know is it creates alot of annoying popups, and in the startup folder it creates .exe's that are all 8 digit random chracters.
that ring a bell for anyone?
To be honest, you're probably much better off backing up essential documents, formatting the hard drive and reinstalling everything - you can clean up as much as you like, but you can never be sure you've caught everything. If you've got winwhatwhere installed, this might be your only option.
