    I have my managers PC tower at my house. Its extremely infected. I am currently running MBAM on it to clear the basic things out. I also plan to run Dr.Web on it. Im looking for the most in depth AV scanner available to pick up registry keys, left over files, and infections themselves. Any ideas?

    You didn't say which OS your manager's computer has.

    If it has 32bit XP, Vista or 7, I would recommend avast! 5 for it's boot-time scanner. :cool:

    x86 Vista Basic

    MBAM cleared out over 1,000 entries, A2 is in progress and has found alot of tracking cookies and a trojan dropper. Once this is done he gets Panda Cloud AV, a nice defrag with Puran, and a nice cleanup with CCleaner.

    There is no Guarantee that the computer will be uncompromised with all the infections that are being cleaned out I would not trust this computer with anything your manager will do online the only way is to reinstall the OS to be sure IMO! :doubt: Not even a dedicated malware hunter would Guarantee a complete clean up!

    Meh its not my issue. He only uses it to download music and play MafiaWars on facebook. He doesnt even bank online or anything like that so the most they can get is access to his Facebook account.
