comment Best practices for handling computer viruses
@LB2 - if you don't mind the virus possibly surviving, then trying to clear it out is an option. I admit I've done this before on one or two situations, but I'm also a software developer and knew a fair bit about the kind of thing I was dealing with. It was a time consuming and difficult process even with my experience and wouldn't really be within the realm of possibility for most users. Rebuilding my computer takes weeks, so spending three days weeding out the tendrils was worth it for a basic infection, but for most people that isn't cost effective or even an option.

@Lb2 - ah, yes, best practice is to only use a backup from prior to the initial infection.
