Re: Remote Remove

Actually, Not true.

Most of the malware infections I have removed were a result of the weakest link of the system, The User. More than half of the infections I've seen could easily have been prevented only of the user did not click the link.

Todays virus, worm, trojan horses are rather complicated and many times fix the vulnerabilty behind themselves so another malware cannot come in behind and take over. Most malware now install root kits that are undetectable by Anti-Virus systems. Once your system has been infected, you are toast until the hard drive has been reformatted and the OS has been reinstalled. A job that Comcast is not going to do for free.
