Do you perform on-demand scans on files/applications that you download? OR, as most, never perform an on-demand scan but rely ENTIRELY on pro-active defense?
The easiest thing to do would be to created a bootable CDROM with AV on it. I suggest Dr.Web's disk as it seems to find/remove rootkits well and you can backup user files with it to external.
The one poster's mention of hacked router firmware is very SCARY... Thing is though that traffic should be in SSL so they wouldn't be able to read the information they obtained that way.
Really sorry to hear about your troubles. Using Firefox is a more secure way to surf the web but I would also install "No Script" to make it even better. I'd also consider some realtime malware protection to work with Nod32 like MBAM Pro. No AV is perfect and it's really no reason to stop using Nod32. Also it's very important to use strong passwords in-case they get a hold of the files that store your passwords and brute force them. Also never store passwords within Firefox's ability to save passwords as it's very easy to hack them outta Firefox.
Retreive "forgotten" Passwords from Firefox
I suggest PasswordDepot and have been using it on the windows platform for many years. It performs a double Rijndael 256 and blowfish on the password list data and is 100% uncrackable if you use a strong password.Edited by HiroPro - 8/16/11 at 8:39pm
