Ultimate Clean and Protect Script

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Don't know if this has been done before, but this is an idea.

I am pretty good at computers, but even the best computer guys (just because someone is skilled with computers doesn't mean he has to run Linux or other such Opperating Systems, some use windows for necessity)

Anyway, I have a few programs i personally set up on my computers, and my friends computers, to fix their computers once and for all. And to prevent them from messing up again.

I have my usual things i do for every computer:

Scandisk, Defrag (if it lets you), install Adaware (i personally am a fan of Windows Defender, or whatever its called now - locks it down and makes it idiot proof - you forget its even running!), then i scan around for stuff, clean up anything i can.

Then i install several programs to keep windows running smooth forever.

Lets get some people to team up and make up a whole series of programs, with a user interface to call them up . Make it big enough to fit on a single USB thumb drive. And put the necessary stuff on the drive to make it autorun at least the user interface to run this stuff.

First step, deciding what sort of stuff we want on this thumb drive and what we want to be able to do.

I think we should do this:

- Include a copy of windows defender antispyware on the drive, and set up a program to not only install this but to also configure it if necessary. And to make it run an initial scan.

- Set up a program to run scandisk to fix anything SERIOUSLY wrong before you try anything else on this list - is there a free / commercial program out there that runs better than windows built in scandisk?

- Include a copy of DiskKeeper Professional 10.0 for defragmenting. Include a program to configure it for optimal settings (don't run when on battery, smart timming defragmentation - to defragment whenever the computer detects its an optimal time such as when nobody ahs been using it for a few hours) - great program, never notice its running on my server - i have 3 hard drives, total of 400 gigs, and it keeps on defagmenting, since it defrags almost every day - i have YET to have my windows crash on me on either of my two computers)

- Install TuneUp Utilities 2006 (2007 ?) - an all in one tuneup program - best one i've seen and read about online. Out of all the tuneup programs, this one has the best reviews, at least 2006 edition did. We have to set up a program to install it (and enter registration info if we want to go with the full version). We need to create a program to configure it so it runs automagically every week.

- Include Firefox 2.0 with several key extensions pre-included - the program will run through the installation process, and then it will install the necessary extensions (I vote for adblock plus, adblock filter G set - an autoupdated list for adblock of what to block - end result: 90% of all ads are removed!, maybe some other handy extensions) - the install program should also possibly remove or hide any way to run internet explorer easily - to keep it as idiot proof as possible (no offense to IE users, but firefox has lots of preventative features that keep the average person out of harms way when browsing the net)

- Include some free antivirus program that will automagically monitor the drive without human intervention - I have yet to find an antivirus program that uses very low resources, has no nagging "registration" reminders or other annoyances. Any suggestions on best antivirus out there?

There you have my list. I'm totally open to suggestions. I want to create a tool so powerful, it doesn't only clean up computers, it also keeps things going so smooth, you don't know something was wrong, until something almost breaks, and somethign pops up saying some huge error was fixed. Or better yet, 2 years later, the computer is still running smooth, and has not had one problem at all

Granted, the obvious way to ID10T proof a system is to uninstall windows and install a more capeable system. but this obviously isn't a reality for someone who has to use windows at their job. Or people who are not skilled with computers to be able to use the full power of their computer. Without having to worry about "filling up" the computer wth porn and other crap. Or having trojans/adware placed on their machines that over time crashes their entire computer.

Myself, I have found great success with my tuneup program. I have a reputation among my huge family and friends, that i can hook a computer up so well that they never have problems again. Imagine if you are the "tech guy" for your family, always resolving simple crap, to never having a problem to fix again.

I know its a long post, i took an extra caffine pill to get started cleaning up my entire room

Who's willing to help out? I know there are some people on here who have crazy ideas and try to get others to make a program for them, and they don't do anything at all. I am in charge of database development and project management of new products (programs) at my job, I am a manager by nature, but I also have lots of programming under my belt, and lots of experiance with creating all sorts of AutoIt programs.

Hopefully I'll find several other people out there who are willing to put in the time to create a tool more powerful than anything that has ever been created for Windows machiens

I help a friend who runs a computer repair business and wrote a script for cleaning virus, trojans , malware. Basically it installs 3 software ,scans and deletes 2 and then leaves one AV app. Sure it requires a little human intervention,its my first AutoIT script which will need some recoding . It helps speed up the process of cleaning machines and as we charge $88 for a virus clean its very handy :-) Procress takes about 10 minutes when the computer is slow from an infection.


Firefox's secret is the same as Jessica Simpson's: its effortless, glamorous style is the result of — shhh — extensions!

Silly people who pay money for someone else to take off a virus. Lol.

EDIT::

Just set another virus thatll start a week after they get it back. Then they come back again. Sneaky eh? The exact reason I wouldnt want to give my computer to someone to "fix".
