Good morning!

I ran across this site when I was searching for startup entries to see what is running on my computer. I was startled to find that I have/had a nasty series of infections. I located the source and have deleted it (and admonished the person responsible for bringing it into the house), and I am diligently trying to remove all of the infections and have come very close... I think. I am trying to avoid a complete system wipe, but I have a brand new HDD sitting still in the shrink wrap in case it comes to that.

I will probably be posting a HJT log in the next few days so the more experienced users here can help me make sure my system is clean. I'm fairly tech savvy, but am also relatively unaccustomed to working with infected machines.

Anyways, that's the long story. The short one is thanks for having a forum to help out!

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.
