Something that remains to be said is that a decent disk imaging program would have saved all this hassle, because you could have simply rolled back to a clean drive image and have written any malware, rootkits, worms or viruses - out of your system.

If I had to choose between my disk image software, and having an anti-virus or anti-malware suite, it'd be the disk imager which didn't get discarded
