There are four other threads under the Security Forum where this might be more appropriate. If so, please point me in the right direction. This is not a 'help, my computer is infected' topic but more of a search for clues. With so many infection types, and areas of a computer where badware can find its way to a hard drive, is there anyway to determine HOW/WHEN a computer was infected? Windows gives you the Event Viewer, which logs certain events (application, security, system, and etc) happening on one's computer. Once it is determined what the infection is, it is easier to link the infection to how it made it to your system. Does one's browser history and/or registry hold the key to logging when your computer was infected?
