Hi all,

just wanted to introduce myself. I'm James, and I'm from Oregon. I've seen this site many times before while doing google searches. I've browsed it a lot too. I've never needed to really register until now, so I didn't. I've always been able to take care of things and un-install spy-ware and viruses, etc, on my own. This one seems to be more of a pain in the butt. Now I feel bad I never registered before. I don't want to seem like I'm just trying to use you guys.

I will say this site is great though, I've recommended friends to come here even though I never registered until now. This site is a great resource, and I'm glad to finally be a part of it.

Anways, I look forward to being here:)

Sorry all, I thought I posted this in the introduction forum. I didn't mean to post it in the HiJack forum (I was in there making a post/thread). I swear I was in the introduction forum. I guess that's what I get for posting with multiple tabs open!!! Thanks for moving it!!!:thumbsup:

Thanks!! I'm glad to be here:)

On a side note...in lue of the Malware-Trojan issues I'm having with my windows install, I'm currently running off of a Linux Live Disto. I must say, other than the slow initial load (due to live cd), everything is running much quicker than my HDD XP install (which I suppose may be due to the malware infection, lol).

I have a question, Have you used Linux before? I am currently running a live cd of ubuntu, but was thinking about trying another distro to compare before I decide to install one.
