Hi everyone,
I just joined the forum because I've been having trouble with spyware on a recently acquired computer. Not my fault! But since I had to do battle with a pretty nasty virus on my grandfather's computer 2 months ago I've been obsessed with online security. I'm hoping that this will be a great place to get help and to continue to learn and feed my obsession. I'm a beginner with this stuff, but very willing and eager to learn. See yah!
Best Regards,
Jeff

Hi, LizardKing64.
Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

If you're interested in learning about spyware/malware removal, you might want to consider joining the HijackThis Team.
If it sounds like something you might want to try, you can apply here.

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.

These 2 tutorial sections contain a lot of useful information:
Tutorials
Mini guides and how-tos - Simple answers to common questions
Be sure to check them out. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the warm reception! Actually the HJT team sounds like something I'd like to do. I tried to send an application, but the site says there are currently no openings. Guess I'll check back later.

Anyway...thanks again for the welcome and I look forward to working with everyone.

Jeff
Best Regards,

Being obsessed about computer security is more like good common sense in today's internet environment. You will find, both in the forums and in the Tutorials, a wealth of information that you can use to keep your computer as secure as possible.
