My mom is having some serious malware issues. I get the machine cleaned and a few days later, she's calling me again about mass infections. All she does on the PC is email, Yahoo IM, World of Warcraft, iTunes and Rhapsody. The only one there I'm not familiar with is Rhapsody. I've read a couple blogs that claim it's a security issue. Any ideas?

Rhapsody is a legit paid music service. It would seem like the email & IM would be more likely to cause problems. Maybe she's clicking on email links and not telling you.

Thanks for the reply. I'll look into that again, just to make sure.

Does she do any browsing without a firewall up?
Cheers,

nope. I have ZoneAlarm set up on her machine. And I put a linksys router between her pc and her modem. Ports are forwarded BTW but only those necessary for WoW updates.
