Please note that using a copy of an OS in another machine breaches copyright and is illegal. By doing this you also leave your machine vulnerable to malware infection as you will not be able to install security updates.
Ok So here is my situation I built a PC from scratch but did not have an OS to install so I created an Acronis system image of my mothers OS (oops!)
Traces of transactions may be found on a pc. I would recommend your mother to use the advice given in the Backdoor Warning as potentially the infection has been copied from her machine.
Do account transactions such as online bill payments get saved in any way to the pc?
I wasn't aware that she had used this PC to pay bills online in the past, but apparently she did. Is it possible to tell when the infection occurred, and if I inherited it from her PC and she just wasn't aware of the infection.
I would advise against copying anything from this machine as it appears to be infected!
I'm going to save this version of the image on an unused HD Labeled INFECTED for evidence. (although given my file sharing history i'm not sure if its a good idea or not.)
Sharing files with an infected machine potentially infects all machines. I would advise immediately isolating this machine from a network.
Oh one more thing I networked these PC's using a LAN connection So they had files that where shared, is there any way to tell the extent of intrusion and if the other PC's are infected?
