whs surely that depends on the result of the scan? Sometimes there is no collateral damage and the infection is cleared up by Malwarebytes.

Yeah, maybe. But a smart trojan turns off all your facilities for recovery. But you usually become aware of the damage pretty soon. Problem is that by that time you may have lost the relevant shadows and/or not be able to use them. That's why I rather rely on my images.

I suppose MalwareBytes will tell you that.

As for what programs to add to EMET, you could start with Acrobat reader.

Use EMET 2.0 to block Adobe Reader and Acrobat 0-day exploit - Security Research & Defense - Site Home - TechNet Blogs

and then add this article to your reading list.

Microsoft EMET | help.artaro.eu

it suggests which programs to add.

ok. thanks a lot. btw any idea why all of my folders except shortcuts were set to hidden and read only? and I noticed my ownership has changed to system too, now if I want to have granted permission to my whole drive again instead of going to take permissions on every folder and taking ownership, is there a way to get around this?
I take it I have to take ownership back, cause a trojan whichever it is may allow unauthorized access to that one person who created it, no?
