Hi All

I am a Programmer/analyst and have over 10 years experience in the IT field. Recently, I got hit with a bad episode of Spyware which froze up my PC and took down my DSL connection.

I was so pissed, that I decided right then and there, that I was going to learn how to deal with this threat and so Ive been educating myself for the past few months on how to remove and prevent spyware.

My friends and family are happy because Ive successfully cleaned up a few dozen of their PC's and learned a lot in the process.

I can tell you that the work thats done by the small group of security professionals out on the Internet in this and other forums is nothing short of amazing. My hats off to BleepingComputer.com and others for keeping up the fight to keep the Internet safe for all.
