A friend of mine who doesn't know much about computers asked me to look at the computer his college age daughter and high school age son use. Apparently they've been complaining about it being really slow, and "The keyboard not working" and other problems. He's computer illiterate and needed a hand. Since my semester's over I fit it in. After 1 hour I managed to start the computer, and install Adaware, and disable the 25 useless startup items. After 4 hours I've managed to run Adaware and Antivir. At this moment, I am at 916 instances of Spyware/Malware including a who's who of major spyware programs, and 211 viruses/worms/trojans. This is getting scary, because I'm going to have to do another spyware/virus pass with each of those before running MS's and PCWorlds anti-spyware apps to finish the job. The really bad part? As I'm typing this Anti-vir is only at 87% complete. It's jumped 120 between 60% and 87%.
