Stop running operating systems that allow so many different ways for
Hacker Defender to get its claws into your system, and are so difficult to
boot from a rescue disk that you can do clean-up from.

(And yes, I *KNOW* that Linux systems are equally vulnerable to having
kernel modules loaded that do cloaking and the like. The crucial distinction
is that it's a lot easier to boot a Linux box from a Knoppix or other rescue
CD and clean things up.)

OK.. So you asked for the best way to treat gunshot wounds, and I suggested
that you avoid areas with high rates of gang-related gunfire.  I've always
been a fan of preventative medicine. :)
