As an IT professional I'm embarrassed that I didn't know about ComboFix. I'll download it tonight.
But I want to add one thing I consider critical: Make a disk image of all your machines--your own and all your users' machines. Do it early, while
they're still squeaky clean. And update them any time you make a system change (add new software or hardware).
I've battled some badware for days, only to lose the war and have to reinstall from scratch. Some of the new "fake antiviruses" will also thrash
your system so bad that, even if you get rid of the virus, the computer won't restart. Sometimes you can dig down deep and repair it--losing a couple
more days--but sometimes not. You can end up wasting a week, where if you had an image you could replace it in 20 or 30 minutes. Highly
