Comodo Cleaning Essentials Hates Audio CDs, Really?... Really?

I had a customer get a virus (why is that still a possibility????) and had to do some remote cleaning. I tried malwarebytes, but it wouldn't finish and kept getting a weird error after scan started running.

I was pretty sure I had everything, but I like to take a few passes at a system that has had issues, if I'm NOT doing a format and re-install, just to be safe.

Trying to make sure all was well, I felt I couldn't give the system back until I had a good, clean scan run, but that was not to be.

After malwarebytes let me down for the first time in a few years, I thought I'd try Comodo Cleaning Essentials, which is a free bit of cleaning kit from Comodo. One thing I like about it is that it doesn't require an install, like malwarebytes. Pretty annoying installing a program in the middle of cleaning up a system. The problem was, I couldn't get the program to run and finish without just disappearing!

AVG Remote Admin Server Goes to 100% CPU

One of my client's AVG Remote Admin servers would go to 100% CPU usage and then refuse remote connections. Sometimes it would be temporary, but sometimes it would take a start/stop of the service to get things going again.

That would be OK, once a year or so, but this system started needed it every week.

While I haven't run a full week after what I did, I did come up with a way to start off with a clean database, which is what the problem was, I think...
