I have been a Network Admin and home PC consultant for many years. It's surprising how much of my time has been spent simply fighting malware of some ilk during those years. Today I am unable to install Windows XP from an original non-OEM CD on a standalone machine with no other drives or volumes except the system volume, which has been wiped with Acronis Disk Director and verified clean with the Disk Director Disk Editor.
Before I even begin to answer questions during the installation process I seem to be owned. Seems impossible. More later in a more appropriate thread.
Looking forward to learning a lot; I'm interested after so many years struggling with these things in becoming proficient in the anti-malware field. The stakes seem to be going up lately and privacy is something I value a great deal.
