First, let me start off by saying that the job everyone does here is outstanding. It's good to know that you have a resource like this to resort to if you get whacked w/ nasties on the net. I did get whacked about a week ago, as many people seem to be getting hit lately. Had a few trojans and other malware on my laptop. The first place I came was here. After running through the 8 steps, I proceeded to post my logs so that someone could take a look and direct me if any further action needed to be taken. Instead, I heard crickets. Now, I understand you guys are all busy. I re-posted a few times just to make sure my origional post wasn't buried. Had about 4 views of my HJT log too. But no feedback. I'm not skilled in reading those, and if I was, I wouldn't need to post them here. What you're doing is a good thing. Just try not to let too many get lost in the shuffle. I have no idea if that's what happened in my case, but I'm sure you can understand my situation - depending on someone to check out my log and give me a 'yay' or 'nay' along with any instructions and instead, getting ignored.
