I teach CISCO IT Essentials and CCNA in a high school. Occasionally students are staff bring in computers infected with Malware. Usually Spybot takes care of the problem. Sometimes we are not so lucky. That is why I am joining this forum. We never charge for our services. I am doing this so my students can learn. This often requires asking someone who knows more than you do.

More and more, malware becomes more prevalent and more sophisticated, and expert help is needed to completely get rid of it. As you become acquainted with what BC has to offer, you will be able to use it to not only educate your students, but also to clean computers.
Welcome to BC and thanks for joining!

Sadly there are no where enough volunteers to help with all the Malware out there. My first post has been up for 4 days. Plenty of views, but no replies. It's hard to explain to my students why it takes so long. I want to learn enough to teach them so they can help others. Currently I have two machines in with Malware. One belongs to my wife's best friend. The other belongs to the son of a co-worker.

I'm willing to do the research to try to fix these two computers. My students have tried to research on-line for possible cures as well. At the moment we are on-hold waiting for forum help before we can move forward. I don't want to get us in deeper without a knowledgeable guide. High school students expect everything to be simple, quick and easy.

I can read the log files and see some of the bad stuff. That's a good first step, but I'd love to learn what to look for and train my students to solve problems on their own. Where can we go to learn if not here?
