I would just like to introduce myself to everyone. I've been to this site a few times and really admire the community here and all of the content in the forums and the tutorials.
I'm a network administrator and software engineer by day. I also perform a lot of desktop support on the 30+ XP systems in our office. On the evenings and weekends I run a small computer repair business. I started it about a year and a half ago and and have done pretty well at it. I've been fixing computers for years and figured I should start charging for it.
I've discovered I'm the weakest at virus and spyware removal. I've always kept my systems clean (currently with Norton Internet Security 2008), so when I encountered systems that contained malware I came up short.
So, I figured this site would be a great place to educate myself. I set up a Virtual PC system a couple of weeks ago and infected it with all kinds of trojans and adware then proceeded to completely clean it up. HijackThis shows no sign of infection. I've asked to join the HijackThis Trainee program here, and sincerely hope I get accepted. I feel it would be a great way to keep my skills sharp and stay on top of the newest threats going around.
Anyway, nice to meet everyone.
