Agree, his guide is indeed very useful but not as useful as dealing with certain viruses that embeds themselves into the system, making them look as if they were part of the system.
In this case, it would be very difficult to impossible to remove it completely without causing some damage to the system, which could render it unstable or even unable to boot up.
