Guys and Gals, I'm trying to help an 83 year old lady, who is deaf, on dial up, I spent over 9 hours today at her house just getting Avast and then running a boot scan. I had spybot and malwarebytes on disk but they each took over an hour to update before being able to run. I'm going back tomorrow to try to finish up, I've got Comodo on disk, but she needs a new Java and a new Adobe Reader, Adobe is a huge program to download on dial up. There has to be a way that I can burn Adobe to disk to install on her computer. I can't be gone another 9 hours, there will be a riot at my house. I haven't even looked about Java and I'm still looking at a defrag. She has been running NO antivirus, NO firewall but windows firewall.
With her being deaf her only means of communication is email and I got that back for her, webmail ATT. I've got to get this done!!
For heaven sake help me here! XP, SP2 IE6, old Dell. No I'm not updating it, I'm still running the same on my three computers, except mine are built and hers is a Dell.
Thanks very much. This is the first time I've posted for help, I'm not a newbie but I'm sure no expert and I never miss an opportunity to learn and to yell for help!!
Again thanks much!!
