I was getting tired of the greeting,

"Our records indicate that you have never posted to our site before! Why not make your first post today by saying hello and introducing yourself to our community in the Introductions forum"

so I thought I would finally introduce myself. My name is Kris, I used to work for a computer manufacturer that is no longer around, but had a lot of fun & learned a lot while working there. I do know though that I need to learn so much more to keep up with the information age. I am thinking of working towards some type of schooling to learn how to fix computers etc, but not sure where to start.

I found this site when trying to fix my very very very slow computer at work, plus my laptop at home. I know they both should be running faster than they do, but wasn't sure where to start. I talked over with my tech brother & decided to start by cleaning up my system start & boy did that help.

I am in the process right now of going through the New User Orientation. I am just about through running all the scans, was not sure what to do with the current Ad-aware, tried my best at least. I know it did not complete & it wouldn't let me run it again after a reboot, so I am finishing up the rest of the steps hoping they will help. My next step is to look through the tutorials & start resolving any more slow issues with my computer.

Thanks for being here for us newbee tech wannabees that can't afford to pay the big guys. :thumbsup:

Hi, kjensen.
Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

A lot of people seem to be having problems, with the latest version of Ad-Aware.
Instead of that, try SuperAntiSpyware.
I think it's a better program.
It'll find more malware, than Ad-Aware will.
Just click the Download FREE VERSION Home Users button.

Thanks for the info. I will definitely give that a try. I am finishing up the Microsoft Updates right now, so I will do that next.

Thanks.

Kris

Heya Kris and :thumbsup: to BC

Yes, i used to use Ad-aware too until it started to lose its connection with its server or something along those lines.
Anyways, i know use SUPERAntispyware, and trust me it is WAY better

Have a nice day :flowers:
