Hi,

 

First of all please do not tell me the answer as I am doing a course on malware removal and have been asked to research this. Instead I was wandering if any any of you would be able to provide me with some tutorial links explaining this. Or perhaps you could tell me some relevant search terms to enter into Google for example.

 

Thanks.

Thank you for this. I suppose I need to be more resourceful with my Google searches. I hope it was okay to do this too. I keep worrying about bothering my instructor with questions since I already asked a few already. In any case I will let them know and ask them if this was okay. Thanks.
