really, you need to measure the problem (mrtg) to help decide what the 
problem is. Microsoft's malware removal kit it worth running for reasons 
unconnected to this problem, and may well help, but until you know 
whether the kids (or someone else) is deliberately doing it, even 
possibly without knowing it, you won't know whether it's fixed.
