    Less than 2 minutes into the SAFE MODE Scan - 151 infections!

    Haven't seen that many in a while!

    Can't wait to see where it ends... :wow:

    Who's got the biggest count on MBAM?

    Okay - Just ended after 3 minutes - 381 Objects Infected. Now - Will it clean up nicely??? :rofl: Fingers Crossed...

    The results can be misleading. If it find an adware program it counts every file and registry key.

    And that's exactly what it did...

    One Trojan, and some overt Spyware was deleted or cleaned... It's a teenage boy's PC... I will advice them that credit cards and personal info should not be used on it, but it's a real grey zone of stuff:
    MyWebSearch
    Relevant Knowledge
    FunWeb Products
    Mighty Magoo
    Hotbar (everyone's favorite)
    Zwangi

    If the kid isn't educated about it, it will be *right back on there* by Saturday afternoon.

    Client will get a few fliers for the family to download Internet Security Tips... :cool:

    We do our best... :supergrin:

    I've seen over 700 with MWB and 1500+ with SuperantiSpyware. Usually on kids computers.
    One client went out of town for the weekend, her little boyscout shut off the Kaspersky content filter and by the time I got called the PC was stuck on www.viagra.com and the mouse and keyboard had been disabled.
