I have been playing with and using computers starting with an Apple II Plus in about 1982. My main career(s) have never been professional full-time IT. I have received specialized training in certain fields of computers. I often help others with their problems.
I am here to learn more. My response to malware infections has typically been to save important data and files and then do a wipe and reload. Then to harden the computer against future infections. And then make an image for faster future recovery. There are certain benefits to that approach. But I want to learn to use a "Digital Scalpel" where possible to cut out the infection rather than throw away the entire host.
