|Trouble shooting an infected XP Home PC on a small peer-to-peer windows workgroup.|
Network setup: Cable Modem connected to Linksys Router connected to several PC's.
We want the infected PC to have internet access while cleaning... for online scans, downloading tools, etc
But do not want to allow virus(s) to migrate to other PC's on the workgroup.
Will putting the infected PC in it's own workgroup... or simply not making it a member of the workgroup with the other PC's... provide adequate isolation ?
Currently disconnecting all other PC's or turning them off while the infected PC is on... and this is difficult for other users of the small network.
Thanks for any help.
