want to see if anyone has a way of detecting the poweliks on a pc short of running a program on the pc.  Whether its a script that checks a file location or a way to look into the firewall looking for network traffic.

I had a client that was experiencing slow network speed.  One user called and says his ie can't download when trying to connect to citrix.  After running the eset cleaner on his pc and removing the powelik, the network was still slow.  I ran the eset Poweliks Cleaner on every pc and found another pc with poweliks installed.  That was 12 pcs to do before that.
