My computer has been saved in the past by having people on these forums analyze my hijack this logs and have me run programs such as combofix and tdsskiller. I think it would be nice to learn how analyze logs myself, and when to use certain anti-malware programs, so that I could fix problems myself, and better assist friends and family with their computer problems. Not sure how to get started. Might anyone have advice for me?

If you're interested in learning about malware removal techniques and how to use specialized fix tools like DDS, Zoek, RSIT, OTL, ComboFix, FRST, GMER, etc is something you are interested in, please read BleepingComputer's Malware Removal Training Program.

The above link explains how to apply and what is required. If there are no slots available, you will have to keep checking back at a later time. We are swamped with such requests and there are not enough instructors able to provide teaching so that limits the number of trainees we can accept.

Due to the self-paced structure of training and limited number of instructors here at BC, it is impossible to say with any accuracy when slots will open. New slots are opened up as our existing trainees complete the lower levels of study and move up toward more advanced levels. This is to prevent our volunteer staff being overwhelmed by an influx of new trainees. There is no notification system in place for when slots open so you need to keeping checking back if BC Study Hall is the school you prefer to enroll in. The logistics and management of such a notification system and the fact we have a worldwide membership negate the potential effectiveness and fairness one would expect from it.

If you don't want to wait for an opening here at BleepingComputer, please be aware that training in malware removal is conducted at various other online Unite Schools to include:
