Hi All,

I am a South African doing contract work in West Africa. Found you guys from a Google search.

I am a computer novice and know enough to mail, call home & a few other minor tasks.

My laptop is my only contact with the world and the old girl seems to be very sick.
Been reading some of the forums trying to figure out what goes for what, and when I am more confident I will post when I know more. (ALL so very intimidating!!!!! I can see what .dll files are creating the trouble but can't even identify the infection!!!! It seems even my Bitdefender has been hamstrung)

I would like to thank you for providing services for us normal folk out there. There seem to be quite a few "baddies" out there, its good to know you good guys are out there fighting the good fight.

Cheers

Hi and welcome to Bleeping Computer. Why not just start a topic with a simple explanation of your problem. As it appears to be malware related try the Am I Infected forum. tell us a little about yor PC and what security tools are installed.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Thanks so much for welcome.

I will do as suggested. Am such a novice, but in time I hope to take some baby steps.

This is the very FIRST forum I have ever joined :thumbsup: Hope it goes well

You guys really seem to have a great community here. Well done!
