I thought of a method that circumvents a virus infected pc from keeping us from attacking the virus/spyware and get rid of it once and for all, at least until the next exploit threatens our every day computer world.

The method is using the infected account to make a existing user account have admin privileges and then signing off. Then go into other existing account now with admin rights and simply use it to post the necessary logs and scripts that are needed to help the forum troubleshooters figure out what is going on with the PC.

I am in the process with guided help from my brother an IT Specialist to remove those buggy trojans and adware agents from the PC.

There are quite a few that came up the main ones were Genetik trojan, Prcview, BHO LRUODUW, these are what prevented no .exe files or scripts to run in IE or FF browers. Also, the desktop was locked down tight with these bugs preventing every move.

I asked my brother to bring a heavy dose of anti-virus cd from his work I believe it was a corporate NOD32 which really laid it on thick against the infestation that was gong on in the hdd. As he was working on it I researched some of the names and found out that the genetik trojan changes thru steps to make it reach its goal of complete control of the PC thru a backdoor exploit controlled by the hacker via his linux/mac based computer.

The lesson to be learned here is to always stay one step ahead of them by keeping antivirus, antispyware , and windows fully updated and never let the would-be hacker be in control of your own personal electronic property. THE END.
