Hi, Ganton here. I'm a newbie to this website and glad to be able to join it. I'm not a Guru or even a semi-Guru, just a user who's trying to get the most out of and enjoy his computer. Probably the biggest reason I'm here is because I H-A-T-E spyware and malware, espec. the latter, and espec. the kind that pops up constantly and ruins your PC's functioning. My PC's been infected a couple 3 times with malicious malware and I took it into the shop twice to have it wiped clean. The last couple of times, I was able to get it clean myself with online free anti-spy and malware software, believe it or not, but still can't be 100% sure that it is rid of any hidden malicious bugs lurking in the background. Anyway, that's why I'm here: to learn and to get good help when I need it! :thumbsup:

It seems to be the usual experience, that getting malware is always easier than removing it from your hard drive. Obviously, the best solution is to prevent it by learning about its methods and to employ a layered software protection. But when this fails, having a place to go to for help is always useful.
