After a virus attack or a botched installation you need to know what has been added or modified. We can do this by searching the entire hard drive for any files that have been created or modified since the install date. This will output everything and you can have a better idea of what has changed or been added to the system. I have found this process has been extremely helpful in troubleshooting recently cleaned virused up machines to get rid of the remnants.
