Hi there, me again. I have been putting this antivirus thing off because I get frustrated with computers. When I last sat here I couldn't do 2 keystrokes without the antispy popup. The spybotSD I had would get 98% through a full scan and the computer would hard reset. I decided to step back and shut it down. I told my daughter not to touch it. Yesterday I looked into the living room and here is one of her little friends, on this computer, on myspace. No problems they said. She had to have hit OK on all the antispy stuff to have it actually go away, right? Or was it just on my account?
This evening I ran the Malware Richard recommended and things seem to be going fine now. I did a quick scan and had it fix what it could. I think I need to post the log, correct? I know there are instructions for doing this somewhere here, I just need to get better at searching. I someone has a link handy for this how-to, I would be in your debt.
Is it safe to assume this website will help me with all the other things I want to straighten out on my computer? I would like to find a way my daughter can have her account with aim and her music stuff, without my account being slowed down with im starting up and the slow startups that seem to happen when she uses a computer. She does not quite understand how to be responsible, and thinks she knows everything.
Sorry about the ramble.
Question: Richard, I know a Richard Fu that used to work at Tektronix where I orked a few years back, that's not you, is it?
