I am always being asked to repair friends computers, which has evolved, by word of mouth, into a small business of sorts. Some of the computers that are sent to me are in such disarray and full of virii, trojans, malware, spyware, etc., that it's a wonder that the computers even boot up. I ran into a situation the other day where I was confronted with several trojans that were being a real pain to get rid of. So, off to google I go to search for help in removing the culprits. I found bleeping computer and began reading some forum postings and the tutorials. I was able to repair the trojan laded computer with HijackThis and ComboFix. So, I send my kudo's to you guys at bleeping computer. Keep up the good work!

Hi irritableGimp,

Welcome to BC. :thumbsup:

This is what it's all about. Free advice.

Of course, as you're making a little coin you could always make a donation to the cause... :flowers:

Fortunately, BC is self-sustaining, so perhaps you might donate to the Red Cross instead. I am sure their budget is strained because of the recent hurricanes on the coast.
