Which of the following should the technician complete to secure the computer with MINIMAL impact to the user?

  • Compare the startup items and services to a known clean image, and remove any startup items not found in the other image. Run an anti-malware scan.
  • Validate that the alerts are false positives, and disable security software on the workstation to prevent further false notifications.
  • Back up the user’s files. Restore the system to the original system image designated by corporate IT policies. Restore the user’s files.
  • Request a content filter exception to allow access to the link from the notification. Once available, follow the instructions on the linked site.
