Malware Detection and Removal for Beginners

A harsh reality for every computer system accessible, networked or not is or will be (almost) be infected by some malware. Although there are many “Anti-Virus/Malware” systems are there to protect us they are bound to fail at some point in time. And when they fail is the time to get our hands dirty and find and remove them ourselves. Although at this point the talk is not promising to cover everything because of limitations (level of technical insight of me and my audience), It’ll cover most of what to do when a system is suspected of infection and when to be suspicious.

Bio:

Intermediate level understanding of Windows & Linux OS (know nothing about Mac except that its based on Unix). Always tying to lay low and understand things below HTTP. A PC Gamer whenever I can be.
