xp home sp2
my wifes pc has been jacked, trojed, and wormed. man that sounds gross.
all problems have been delt with, thanks to bc.
not all problems were fixed. some were side stepped and some are deleted and reinst.
id like to know that she has the same pc that she got for xmas.
i need to clean the regestry and we cant just plug the cammera in and dl. the printer is also rerouted. win32 has to close alot. hp connect has a runner error.
all these thing either work or arent needed. we just have to do things other than the way they were ment to. two different adwares thats there but disabled.
all the effort to clean this and fix that.
can it be new again?
if the pc was wiped clean, so to speak and os back up reinstalled would it be new again?
its a case of, "if i new then what i know now" thing.
if so, there is one major question.
we did the ultimate no no.
we turned it on and plugged into the net. only thing we installed was ie.
and we got bit.
this pc had no back up discks. we were to dl a partitioned os and pc tools onto cds. this was done, but after we got bit.
we didnt have inadequat protection, we had none. our door was open.
can it be new or sould we stick it out and address each problem?
advise would be appritiated.
