I just use mcafee and adaware to get things started. When a machine is just too bogged down, I can pop this disc in and make the machine usable. Then I can use my normal tools to finish the job.

I personally live, work and die by bartPE.
My pe disc contains everything i need to get a (l)users machine up in a minimal amount of time. I use mcafee's command line scanner and bug zapper for...

Exactly, the svchost in the windows folder was part of the trojan. The real svchost is in windows\system32. So when I deleted it, it happily died a painful death.
Also, yes i removed...

I started process explorer via hklm/s/m/w/cv/run and saw the process tree which was starting all the problems. Strangely, there was a windowsupdateXXXXXXX.exe (or something like that) being...

Thanks for your replies before I head in to tackle this foe.
Nihil: I will try pest patrol, thanks for recomending it. I have run aaw and sb:sod (yep, updated and all that jazz) but there was no...

So, there's a machine in the shop that was overrun with virii (350 instances of bagle, stuff like that). The machine is running xp home sp1 (not the latest updates, as you could guess). I have been...

Actually, it does stop under normal windows mode if the color depth and/or resolution is not what they want. The computer didn't recognize the monitor and defaulted to 640x80 w/256 colors, guess what...

Well, I didn't really have a lot of time to play around with it. This was only my second time installing the program (on XP before), and the store was busy so I didn't have the time to play around...

Yesterday a customer brought in his win98 machine which was having problems with pandasoft's combo firewall/av product, "platinum internet security". His problem was with a botched install, but...

I recently had a run-in with something like windows.crack-cd.com and yes, it did try to download the assassin trojan (i guess it was firefox that asked if I wanted to install it, to which i said no)....

Wow, does this sound familiar. A few months ago I had a similar problem. I re-installed xp on my laptop and took a quick trip to the library (I was offline at the time). While there i deceided to...

please explain your problem a little better. What game are you trying to install? what are the system specs for the machine (including operating system)? What is the error message you are getting?

I've noticed this happening on my machines also. It normally happens when i end a program that has active connections. I know that bit torrent and other p2p has caused these on my machines. In...

I've had sp2 installed on my laptop since the RTM version was released. Really, I've not had any problems that I couldn't quickly work out. I'd say the most important thing is to check for updates to...

Quick aside to ikalo's post...
Your router may be "stealthed" in such a way that it may not respond to pings. Pings of course are what the tracert command uses to determine the host.

I have a linksys wrt54g wireless router. It is running wpa with aes and i have had no known compromises of the system. Here's what I did:
open a web browser and navigate to 192.168.1.1 (or whatever...

This isn't really anything new. skiddies and maybe higher level crackers have been making clusters of networked owned machines for years. I'm sure we've all heard of ddos attacks... Looks like some...

First, I second what Heretic said... Any encryption is good (wep), and good encryption is better (wpa + tkip or aes). If the ISP doesn't have/allow encryption then you need to pound the idea into...

This is a "newbie" tutorial, so I guess "newbie" = pay money until all the problems go away. The methods stated in this tutorial have been covered in (all) other "secure xp" articles wasting space on...

ok, control panel -> folder options -> view -> uncheck "Hide Extentions for known file types"
Then just be on the lookout for:...

ok, let me rephrase that...
I'm not going to install a firewall program... my desktop and other laptop both have firewall programs so i can restrict in/out on those machines. Also, I have a...

Last week I received a Dell Inspiron 3500 laptop. Specs are: 266mhz PII, 64mb 66mhz ram, 4.2gb hdd. I've installed windows 2000 pro. The network is provided by a netgear USB adapter, which plugs into...

Fine, let everyone move over to firefox. Then the rest will move to opera... And I (with many others) will sit and laugh at you while plugging away at a plain-text browser. Just try and make an...

How is it possible to "see" the computer but not be able to ping it? From what I remember, the syntax of the ping command would be like:
