i'm going to help a friend remove a virus from their computer tomorrow, so today i want to get all the best tools for the job and go "loaded for bear" tomorrow to hopefully fix him up in a hurry.
traditionally i like to put the hard drive of the infected computer in my clean computer and have my computer clean the infected drive.
i do this because it seems like the latest viruses disable most of the things that help to defeat them. so if the infected drive isn't the boot drive, then the virus can defeat things like the task manager.
having said all that, i was thinking of bring malware bytes, combo fix, and on my pc i have updated windows 7 and microsoft's security essentials ( updated ).
how does this sound for a plan of attack?
