Hi all,

I'm a computer tech (aren't we all?) I'm registered just about everywhere these days.
Sadly due to my profession I need to attend lots of dark sights (why?) To either find relevant information or to fully test specific programs that can not be normally tested (why again?) To offer support to others, including gaining knowledge for myself in dealing with spyware and a billion other related things.
I believe that there is an increase in support for techies such as myself, in this area.

As I am very careful and have many programs running (or that can be run) regularly to protect my PC, I am still concerned about what else may be lurking around my PC (ie hours of scans with multiple progs are becoming less attractive to me)

My computer itself + proggies are fully authentic so I would like to ask if I could have a full checkup by you guys, to see if anything may not be required lurking within my PC. (presently without any known fault).
I would be asking for someone with a high ability (well at least higher than mine) and an interest in a real computer tech's PC who has already confirmed all the basics.
Sorry no hackers, having full knowledge in this area I have been able to learn easily how to avoid hacking, rootkits, port & IP scanning, remote you-name-it; and always keep up to date with all the rest.

YOu would first want to run HiJack This! in scan mode only and post the log to the HiJack This forum on this site. The people here are very good at spotting malware. Start there and wait until you hear from a HiJack This team member who will help you determine whether your computer is free of malware. It may take some time so be patient we ar eall volunteers here.

The HJT team works on a first-posted, first-reviewed basis; how soon your log is begin depends on the number ahead of you in the queue, and the number and workload of the HJT team at any one time.
Every effort is made to begin a posted log within 5 days, and it is my impression that most are started much sooner than that.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
