My name is Kiro, and though I've been a longtime admirer of bleepingcomputers security and malware gurus, I've never needed their services until recently (I finally met a malware program I couldn't beat myself).
That said, I'm a huge computer, software, and security buff, so I look on this as an impetus to finally become a part of the community I've only lurked on until now.
Please take the time, to browse the New User Orientation forum, to help familiarize yourself with how the board works. If you have any questions about how to use this site, this forum will probably answer them.
Also, don't forget to check out the Tutorials. There's a lot of very useful information, in there.

I really am happy to be here, and I'm actually hoping that I can begin to learn some of what it takes to be a 'soldier against malware' myself by hanging around the forums, talking to people, and watching how you work. As a victim of malware that literally conquered one of my old computers, nothing makes me happier than watching the anti-spyware programs do their work. I built this new computer with my own two hands, so I'm especially protective of it; it's nice to have a reliable resource to come to when something threatens to hurt it.
