Re: removing exe files...
cd / ; rm -fr *.exe
This command will remove all files ending in ".exe" from the entire
filesystem. Is there some sort of naming convention used for those
exe files? If so, come up with a regex that will match all (or at
least most) of those files without matching anything you want to keep.
Then use it in conjunction with the "-r" (recursive) option to rm.
