Hello all,
New member to the site.
As often is the case, especially for those who don't work w/ computers, the most education I get is when there are problems
I won't go into my trouble much as this is just an into post, but I have to learn how to remove the Dumavuja virus or malware whatever off of my computer.
After not using computers since the Atari/Commodore days, I began having access to computers a few years back. Learned what I do know from books and fighting w/ an old obsolete Win 98 'Puter for a while. Now am Using an Emachines T6500 that I bought a few years ago. As I do little other than research on the web and Forums etc it is still plenty of machine. Most of the games I play are old ones anyway ( Neverwinter Nights that's how old LOL ). Anyways, since picking up this pop up causing virus/malware, things are now a pain in the ass. So, here I am ready to do some more learning. If the computer works right, there is nothing to fix/learn. When it's broke it's hard to figure out how to work on it. At least I am able to get online andread up.

Oh Boy! I can't wait. :thumbsup:

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Please take the time, to browse the New User Orientation forum, to help familiarize yourself with how the board works.


Also, don't forget to check out the Tutorials.
There's a lot of very useful information, in there.

Thanks Guys, and thanks for the Welcome JGWeed. Good to hear from a fellow Chicagoan. I am no longer in Chicago but spent the majority of my life there and growing up.

I am going to take this Malware as a blessing in disguise. A good opportunity for learning.
