I'd classify post #38 as a mild flip-out, but whatever.
If you've seen it all, then there's no way you can fix any sort of scenario in the short duration of a few hours.
Unless you have a single app that will fix everything, running scans alone and actually diagnosing the problem kills hours and hours.
Scanning/diagnosing, fixing, and updating takes a lot of time and there is no way around it in even the best case.
The right way to fix a system is the method with a combination of the lowest time spent (customer cost) and the best future reliability. All I, and a few others, have been saying is that it doesn't take much for a backup and reinstall to be the fastest and most reliable choice.
So saying that I'm baffled and stepping back because I don't want to **** people off is flipping out?
Man I'd hate to see what you'd call someone actually flipping out.
You can try to tell me the same thing over and over again...and it doesn't change what I've been doing for years...without an issue.
The way I do things is the reason why I've worked for the government, and why places like MS have me consult on things and even contract my work at points.
I'm good at what I do, and security happens to be one of my specialties.

Personally if you don't know what to do and you have to question yourself you might not want to take someones personals things and do the work.
