Does anyone know how to get rid of zombification without wiping the computer's memory? I think my computer may be a zombie because it is moving soooooo slowly for no reason and I read bout computers being converted to zombies through backdoors. So. . . can anyone help me?
By the way, if you don't know what a zombie computer is, I refer you to the October 2006 Popular Science.
Why not scan your computer with a top notch AV and then boot up in safe mode and delete the infected files :p this is the easiest way :)
ive never herd of a zombie cpu
Its when your computer is so slow it takes like 5-10 minutes to do any task givin to it lol... I had a reboot computer once stupidest Trojan too... I wish people didn't make viruses or Trojans internet would be a little more fun.
i think u should delete all internet files including history cuz that what most makes ur cpu slow as a cow or a hippo.
Sometimes its the cookies but it depends on how long you been dling, watching, visiting, etc. Crap on sites I usually have 500 megs of crap from 1 month of internet usage then I use my Window Washer :D

Once your machine is RAT (Remote Access Trojan) infected machine, THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN BE COMPLETLY SURE YOU'VE SELECTIVLY REMOVED IT!!! This is the reason why a Hard-disk repartitioning, followed by a format and reinstallation is the normal recommendation for a serious Trojan problem....
It's always a good thing to have multiple partitions
for instance, one for your operating system, one for your games and anime ^_-
and one for data and personal matter,
for as the trojans, a good firewall might help
or you unplug the internet, but then you won't be able to post ^_-
