Ok so it was a bit more mundane, something like, how to clean Spyware/Malware/BHOs or something. Im a mid-high level PC user (been an IT manager, tech support, grew up on an Apple II, Commodore, TRS-80, Amiga, Atari 800... then x86 and Mac (both, currently).
But I found your guide a nice summary of the steps to take, requiring me to think less, plus a great link to send to others who were having problems so that I could avoid actually helping them myself.
QUESTION though: Its a bit long in the tooth. Any chance of a new, up to date version sometime soon? If not, do you know any similarly thorough walkthroughs to removing crap from Windows that a normal intelligent person could follow along with? Thanks bro!
I tend to overkill the cleaning process, which works, but I surely use some programs which are redundant. A nice current guide with up-to-date freeware references and instructions that include Windows 7 along with XP would kick ass. I think a lot of people would refer to it.
my back is killing me so I might not have my normal amount of vitriol at hand to bitch and moan :P
