Killing a Virus on a Friendīs Machine

killing the dswave32.dll and itīs associated garbage

I spent the last 2 days working on a friendīs computer to remove a nasty little virus that the anti-virus software didnīt seem to do much About apart from detecting it. To help, I reported my findings over on my technical blog - but I thought it might be good to cross post that here for your reference.

My Technical blog entry is here: Killing the dswave32.dll

Basically the procedure involved a lot of scans from various programs while the computer was off the internet. Then some manual deleting of files, more scans, and some reinstalling of key components.

In the end the virus was eradicated and we can all smile again. But if youīre interested the technical blog post has some good detail on how I nabbed it.
