    Got to see the Avast! BART cd "in action" on an unbootable xp machine last week. KaaZaa installed and NAV with no updates past 2001.

    847 infected files. w32.Kwbot, and w32.Parite worms.

    A shout-out to the BART cd: It got 'em all, and the machine booted normally (albeit with damaged video) after the cleanup. :D
