Are there any good training courses for IT techs that center on the subject of Malware removal and system repair(all types inc rootkits). It would be good to have everyone on the same page in our Lab. I want to standardize (as much as possible) PC repairs.
Thanks in advance for any info.

Yes, it most certainly can.
learning to remove malware manually can be a pretty intensive process.
Before I started my training here I thought I knew quite a lot about malware removal. But, by the time I got to Sophomore Exercise #3, I quickly realized that I didn't know half as much as I thought I did.
(By the way, after the research I've just done, if anyone (including Mark Russinovich) wants to know anything about services that run under svchost, just let he know. )
Seriously though, the training here is excellent. As Elise said earlier, it can be pretty intensive. But it is also very thorough and very interesting. I'm really pleased that I managed to get accepted into the training program.

In many corporate and network environments, the best policy when malware is involved is simply wiping the drive and reinstalling. This is as much for security of sensitive information as anything else. One should always have multiple secure backups on different media of all important documents, files, etc.
