I am the resident geek in the family. I have been thinking about this for a week or so trying to put together a game plan as to what I would like to do. I have put a lot of thought maybe too much into it. So I am gonna give it a go. I thought about all of my past problems and how you guys helped. I also thought about the things I would do if I had the same problem. The biggest thing I am facing is simply the time. When dealing with my own PC I can start a scan at bed time or before work and deal with it hours later. And after a few days have everything in great shape. Given the fact that the PC is not in my house that changes things. He has no PC skill so I could not ask him to do anything. So what am I to do. The reason I posted this in Am I infected? What do I do? is the fact that our niece was over there for the weekend and when she is at my house she is not allowed to use our PC cause we end up with some sort of malware everytime she touches it. At home I would run MBAM quick followed by MBAM full, then in safe mode DR Web, ATF, and Super Anti-spyware. After any problems are resolved run disk cleanup, CCleaner, Defrag and ckdsk. But the time to do all of that is just too long. So does anyone have any suggestions? Also if possible I would like to put what I can on my 256mb flash drive if possible another alternative would be burn it on a disk.

Unfortunately there are no shortcuts in malware removal. you need to run some scans and review the logs to see what is next.

Now you can run MBAM and DrWeb of the flash drive but now you need to review the results.
Use SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Scanner instead. Save the randomly named file (i.e. SAS_1710895.COM) to a usb drive or CD and transfer to the infected computer. Then double-click on it to launch and scan. The file is randomly named to help keep malware from blocking the scanner.
