I'm considering joining ... mostly, I found a way to lobatomize Aurora (finally, at least on XP) without 18,000 tools and wanted to share. This was the most Google-able site for malware removal, I got the idea to play with regmon from here. I don't know my way around here (at least not yet), feel free to move/edit/delete/add/plagerize/try out/correct/etc.

Three steps, two definately important, one maybe not so ...
1) Using regedit, delete all the entries under HKEY_CURRENT\Software\aurora. Change the permissions for this key to deny access to all users.
2) Repeat #1 for HKEY_CURRENT\Software\Bolger
3) Delete C:\Windows\nail.exe. Create a small text file (contents unimportant) called nail.exe and attrib +r it. (This may not be relevant ...)

I'm a software engineer, 14 years of experience. I've got B.S. in Computer Engineering/Computer Science. The considering joining part ... I'm not sure how much time I will be able to spend, but I'd like to learn more. I've been working outside my usual Windows realm for a couple years and need to get back into the swing of things. Usually I can hack malware out of the registry pretty quickly, but this #$(% Aurora thing took forever. It's still not gone, but seems to be disabled for the moment.

Hi,

Yes I'd like to help if I can learn enough to do so. My IQ isn't a problem, but my age (70 yrs 10 mths) and the fact that I have always been a bit scared of all that I don't know about my own PC might be.

Don77 worked me through repairing a miserable problem I was having with a Malware search engine called "Isearch." The process was a real learning experience for me and I watched him working with someone else and began to think maybe, with some training, I could do for others what he did for me. So here I am :tazz: Blessings - Chuck521

Hi!

A member of your staff "bananafanafo" helped me cleanup some problems with a Win ME laptop. This is a service I wish I had found a long time ago.

I would love to learn more about "Scumware" and be able to help others wipe it out. I have worked with PC's for a long time, but it has been all self taught. This Malware epidemic is a problem that needs a lot more groups like GeeksToGo.

Let me know how I can get started to on the road to being a fellow GEEK!!!

Jerry

Like to join as a new helper.

Industry experience: started in '86 with DOS 3.1, worked up through Windows from v3.11 to 2003, with bits of Netware, MacOS, and IBM mainframes thrown in for good measure. <grin> Started officially as a hardware technician, moved to network technician, then network engineer and instructor (MCSE, MCT, CNP). Dropped certifications while spending 2 years in Russia as a Peace Corps volunteer. (Wow, are there a lot of pirate copies of Windows over there!) Returned to pick up Win 2000, just in time to have to catch up to W2K3. Whew!

Currently, am COO of Kolkidos, Inc. in Boise, Idaho. We manage small business' computer networks for them - everything from recommending and purchasing the hardware, through setting up the Cisco firewall and W2K3 servers and XP workstations, to maintaing everything with updates and regular maintenance work.

Thanks,

Matthew

I'm willing to help.

Started with a computer my dad built from a kit. Had a cassette tape as a storage medium, a converted B&W TV as the monitor, and a Teletype machine as a printer. When Tandy TRS-80 came out, we got one. Learned Basic on that. Used all 8KB of memory with my first program. (Convinced my dad to get the 16KB upgrade!) After graduating high school, dropped out of computer environment. Got back in just before the release of Windows 3.1. Picked up a copy of VB2.0 Pro and taught myself to program again. Did it for fun until I saw a need at work. Wrote a program, got noticed, now am a team lead for a development group that writes programs to design circuits.
