Links and instructions on cleaning and securing your Windows 9x, 2000, and XP Home or Pro system.

Scan thoroughly for malware. Be sure that you running a firewall.
One should be active at all times when online.

Run these programs to check for adware/spyware/malware. After installing, be sure to
update them, then boot into safe mode and run them. You should update
and run Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D weekly.

If you’re still having problems after running these then run HijackThis
and post the log to one of the specialty forums,Be sure to follow thier
respective log posting protocol.It is very import that you do otherwise it
degrades the ability of search engines when trying to research the files
that are found. The logs must be hidden from google on certain threads.

For suspected viruses, start with Trend Micro's Sysclean. Download both it and the
signature file. First, turn off system restore, then boot into safe mode and run
sysclean. Boot back into normal mode and run a full AV scan with your
normal AV program. Then turn system restore back on.

You should also regularly run at least two of these online scans in
addition to your regular up to date AV program:

McAfee AVert Stinger Virus Removal Tool

Note: Stinger looks only for a limited number of specific viruses.
It's not intended for full strength virus scanning and removal, but it
can help eliminate enough threats to allow you to install and scan with
a full featured AV program.]

Make sure you have a firewall active at all times. If nothing else use
the one built into XP, but ther are free third party ones
that do a better job than SP2's built-in from Sygate, Zone Alarm or Kerio. I recommend Sygate or Kerio over Zone Alarm.

Lastly check your system for vulnerabilities. Make sure you have all
the latest security patches from Windows Update too.

If you have Microsoft Office installed, Update it.

To help harden IE: (you should only use it for windows update)



1. disable ActiveX downloads of all kinds in internet zone



2, edit trusted zone site security to medium. Like you ever need a 'run anything, unprompted' zone.



3. add https:*.microsoft.com and http:*.microsoft.com to the trust zone



4. uncheck the 'require https in trusted zone' switch



the aim is to redefine "trusted" from "total access" to "prompted download active X controls", which is a serious enough undertaking that I dont want to enable it broadly. Only MS sites and spyware vendors seem to use it, after all
