I've been using your site for a few years now to learn more about system security.  I now seem to have a rootkit on my system so I'm registering so that I can hopefully get a hand with it's removal.


I'm a professional programmer (c#/SQL Server/HTML5/ASP.NET) by day, mainly building large eCommerce web sites (and playing around with Leap Motion software outside work).  My web dev work means that IT security is something that I deal with regularly, so I've been using your great site to further my knowledge.


I'm on the Gold Coast (Australia).  My main interests beyond IT are travelling (I head over to Europe at every opportunity) and music (I play guitar and a little bass and drums, grunge and punk mostly, and dabble in production, psy-trance and similar genres).  Other interests are cooking, adrenaline sports and reading crazy conspiracy theory stuff (...or maybe not so crazy? ;)


I'm now off to post in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs to try and get my pc cleaned up so I can finish my latest Leap Motion project and get it onto their app store.
