The biggest favor you can do for Windoze users is
1) Back up their data.
2) Wipe the drive clean (*NOT *just* a FORMAT
--FDISK the partition to get any boot sector viruses).
3) Fresh install of Windoze and apps.
4) Having bought an _additional_ hard drive,
image the fresh install to that HDD and put it in a closet.
When you have problems again,
restore the clean image to the problematic system.
Installing an OS that isn't easily infected
would be an even bigger favor.
