Greetings from the Sunshine State! I've never been part of a forum before, but have worked with computers long enough, it's about time. My name is Tim, and I'm a high school library/media specialist in Inverness, FL. I'm not a native Floridian, however (Are there native Floridians any more?) Home will always be Knoxville, TN, althought I've been down here 27 years.

What has brought me here initially is an unexpected viral infection in some machines at school that I inadvertantly brought home with me. So I've decided that I need more edumacation and support with all this computer stuff. I know quite a bit already, but still feel I have only scratched the surface.

Welcome to Bleeping Computer Tim :thumbsup:

Sounds like you may need to create a new topic in the Am I infected? What do I do? forum.

When you get a chance, the New User Orientation section is a good place to help get familiarized with how the board works.

Also, you may want to bookmark our Tutorials, as they offer a wide range of information and solutions.

Thanks, TMack! I have spent the last few days reading the orientation and finding my way around. I found the step-by-step procedures to do before posting an HjT listing and after completing all the steps, I feel that I have gotten a handle on the infected machine. My newer computer was also infected, but I was able to revert to a previous cofiguration and that cleared things up nicely. I'll verify the work done on the older machine a little later. More pressing right now is what to do with my flash drives which inherited the viruses and caused this mess. I plan to post that question in the "infected" forum.
