Case of Bad Spyware Infestation

Security - Free Software Downloads and Software Reviews - "I thought about reformatting, but the couple couldn't afford to erase the sensitive information they had on their clients. They had never even made a backup. The situation was getting pretty sticky at this point--antivirus programs were not even installing from a disk. I somehow managed to get my hands on CWShredder and HijackThis and started aiming at those pesky things. CWShredder removed 16 variations of the Cool Web Search Trojan, about 60 files total. HijackThis appeared to remove more of the spyware, but the files kept regenerating. I rebooted and managed to get Ad Aware SE installed, a minor miracle."

Implement WPA2-Personal wireless security on a Windows XP SP2-based computer

Implement WPA2-Personal wireless security on a Windows XP SP2-based computer: "I've been running the DWL-3200AP in WPA2-PSK mode on my network, and it has been performing well. While you won't find this particular access point on the shelves in retail outlets, stores such as Circuit City are distributing them by mail order from their Web sites. If you're running a home office or are a high-end residential user, I recommend this access point because it has a 'guest mode' that employs wireless virtual LAN (VLAN) technology. With this technology, you can set up a separate, non-encrypted service set identifier (SSID) on the same device that is totally isolated from your own network."
