Microsoft recently released into Beta a new malware recovery tool called the Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper. It addresses one of the fundamental problems encountered when attempting to clean up a seriously compromised machine.

The sweeper looks to be a useful tool in a couple of specific cases: 
  • When other traditional attempts at cleaning the system by running tools within the system have failed.
  • When the malware infection prevents anti-malware programs from being downloaded or updated.

The site at trawls the web, looking inside millions of image files and making a note of each image's URL and the camera's serial number.

So if your camera ever gets stolen, use the site to upload a picture that you took with the camera while it was still in your possession. The system will then compare that picture with the database, and show you any other pictures on the web that were taken with it.
Which might just help you recover your stolen camera or help you remember where you left it.
