    My Anti-Malware/Rootkit cocktail!!

    Just an update. Unhackme still rocks!! I don't use combofix anymore and I've replaced it with Malware Antibytes for the fake alert antivirus software.

    Remoting to domain controllers and the Win 7 taskbar and remote desktop.

    I use the remote desktop to remote into our servers, so I pinned it to the taskbar. Problem was going to another server, because when I clicked the icon on the taskbar it opened up the remote desktop of the server I already logged into. Under XP you'd just click on the icon and it would keep...

    This reminds me of my Vista laptop with IE8. There are times when IE8 just stops responding and it usually happens after I take it out of sleep mode. I like the idea of shaking the mouse or hitting the shift key and having the browser open where I left it. I do give the laptop time to get...

    I'm getting RunDLL errors on startup

    I remove a lot of viruss at work and that filename mLEtTKaY.dll and the other so looks like a virus.
