Hey guys, I would like to learn a little about removing malware. I want to practice a little in hopes of taking the BC.com Malware Removal Program, but first want to get my feet wet to see if I'm up to it. Don't know if this is the proper place to post but it's a start. I have three laptops and spend most of my time in the Linux/UNIX forums.
Right now I got a friends Windows 7 laptop and it is full of junkware, and avast won't even work. Don't want to break any forum rules but want to pursue this a little further, please advise.
I downloaded Emsisoft EKK but am not sure that it will do what I want with the Malware I have, firstly "Spyware Clear"
I read that it makes changes to the Registry and that MBAM is a good tool for this. I'm guessing EKK will do the same thing, but I am so new to all this I wouldn't know.
Also read that it can just be Removed by the Add-Remove Programs, but then also read that sometimes this don't work, and, other sites say to do this in "Safe Mode"
