Quick thoughts on cleaning windows

Years ago, when the world was young, and the web was a glimmer yet to be realized, there were boot sector viruses. McAfee had this neat feature where you would create a boot floppy and it would scan your machine and clean up these nasty buggers.


Today we have neat things like Knoppix. My thought is, where is the Windows Washer distribution of Knoppix? Maybe it’s out there and I’ve missed it. Seems to me the perfect thing for dealing with all the rootkits, spambots, and zombie armies out there.

This article reminded me that there is still a need for these things.
