I apologize if I'm in the wrong spot and it seems trivial in the scheme of things, but it seemed as close as I could come. To put it simply...is there any quick or easy way to tell if you're the victim of .bat scripts? What started out as a joke in the workplace by some script kiddie no doubt has escalated into something more malicious. Slowing down production. I know it started with one because the first time it was in the form of a message ...a personal shot if you will. Now it's gotten to computer shutdowns, Blue screens, fake virus messages, etc, none of which seem to be real or harmful with the exception of work stoppage(maybe this has become the point). Well, anyway, is there anyway to find out quickly? I've searched the joke sites I could find and though they have loads of scripts they don't divulge how to rid yourself of, or find them before they're executed. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Thanks, and have a great New Year!
