However, do remember not to create a backup image until your problems have been resolved.

Are you training at one of the malware removal schools?

Yes I am, I use Legit Torrents all legal
What files are you downloading? Sounds like you picked up something from downloading copyright material
I have downloaded an Ubuntu ISO (for a virtual machine) as well as an Adobe CS4 TRIAL (so i believe its still legal). I have, however deleted both and emptied my recycle bin. Then I used system restore and went back to before I even had Utorrent installed. It seems to have worked.

I've trained at a malware removal school at Hack Forums. Their system is virtually that of BleepingComputer's, but I never finished my training. HF isn't ASAP recognized either, unfortunately.

No, the site is not an ASAP site. As to the system, it may have the material taken from BC but not the trained instructors.

The instructors at HF are qualified teachers.
