Hi, my name is Polly. I am the mother of a VERY CURIOUS 13 year old boy who likes to surf the web for......well, you know. Anyway, because of this I have had more than a few problems with viruses, worms, malware, etc, etc, etc. I have everything from Combofix, Spyware doctor, Avast, SpyNoMore and Spyware Blaster downloaded into my PC. Apparently I have nothing better to do with my time but scan, quarantine, and fix. Not to mention learning more about my computer than I really ever cared to know.
Well, that's my story, and I'm stickin' to it.

Some people are like slinkies, not really good for anything, but it makes you smile if you push them down a flight of stairs!

Make your son sit beside you when you fix the problems he has caused. This may discourage him from some of his unfortunate on-line activities, or at least allow him to begin to fix them himself.
BC is always here to help you with problems that you cannot resolve quickly.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
