11/11/2004 Archived Entry: "Disinfecting your PC"

Over the months I've offered a lot of advice about how to protect your computer from invasion, but no advice on how to recover from a successful attack. Well, the Register has picked up my slack with a useful article for Windows users on how to disinfect contaminated PCs. Lots of good links in there.

I was amused to see this piece of advice:

It's good practice to reinstall Windows every 12 months or so as the many interdependencies of the OS can result it becoming slow and unreliable without an annual clean.

That is a really sad comment on the quality of the software.
