@oxide54 - I'm talking about me doing this manually on each machine - I just wanted to check the thought process that a fully Windows Updated machine == to a fully patched machine and that there is no need to check to see if individual patches have been installed.
And I did think I didn't need to agree that I needed av as well
My basic driving force on this one is that either the 'f*cker can spotaneously re-combust on its own and therefore I'm doomed
It can't do that then I haven't cleaned and the machines sufficiently and I need shooting
They is another mode of re-infection involving another sort of f*cker of the person variety that doesn't understand what is going to happen to them when I find them!
At the moment we've only been running with the classroom teacher machines and 6 laptops and the library computer - all others have had their network cables and mains leads removed and the other (older) laptops are in a cupboard wired with 11KV on the handles.

This has just popped up our on EIS grid list from another School - similar issue.
As always once I see a scare in another school I do some checks, make sure EPO is fully updated and deploying to all clients and windows updates on any machines I can check.
We have not had a virus here since the Blaster/Welcha? first came out years ago - oh what a nightmare that was (worst thing was my colleague refused to admit that we had a problem). After spending ages making sure every PC was updated etc we managed to get rid of it.
You could find a PC updated it self or worse the infected machine has been switched off and not turned on. Once that is turned on BAM

Well - good news and bad news - good news is still hasn't returned again since last weeks re-surfacing - bad news is I still don't know how/why it resurfaced (and then went again)???? and....
.... the schools just got the OFSTED call 15 mins ago (coming on Monday) so I'll be camped out there till next Tuesday with a large hammer in my back pocket to hit it on the head if I see any sign of it!

Well if it is something like that, then the member of staff concerned here has the sense to be lying low now!
