:_THAT_ is a far larger problem you should have considered long

Nick,
Would you please elaborate futhur on this? I read it to say we should have
cleaned out the machines first by hand and we are lame or hamstrug for
relying on anti-virus, anti-spyware programs to find them.

If one [or more] of you on the list could be so kind to indicate a
[many] resource[s] that lame hamstung admins would be wise to follow
as guidlines to secure Windows systems.. it would be so much more
productive. espcially  for those lazy a$$ admins who may overlook the
single [or multiple] missed step that lets them become owned, hacked,
infected, unpatched, bugged, spewing, spamming, bots, rooted .... [I
am sure to have skipped a few important ones] ;-P
