Kudos to [U]Solaris17[/U] for a job well done. As a former (now retired for 4 years) IT Admin at a public radio station at times I'd be swamped with staff laptops as well as personal laptops of station employees that fux0red them up with malware and other garbage on a regular basis. I used many of the listed tools regularly with Hitman Pro being my usual go-to. In my case things were so bad I finally quit doing cleanings and just did drive wipes with Dban and fresh OS installs because that took less time and I was tired of removing the same garbage from the same laptops on a regular basis. Some folks just never learn. Again, a fine and comprehensive guide that's right on the money.

This message should be taught by law before buying a computer.

Clarify, conceptualize and guide you.
