Hello all, new here, from New Zealand. Signed up here initially to find a solution to my nephews rootkit and virus infested laptop. Seems I have defeated the evil with the help of your tutorials and search function without having to create a new thread here.
First impressions show a very information and helpful forum, hats off to the team.
Anyway, I'm sure my nephew will be bringing his laptop back at some stage for me to fix ... sigh.... so think I'll stick around.

Cheers for the help :thumbsup:

Of course, you could always have your nephew join and then he could experience the immense pleasure of fixing his own problems (probably with your help). He would find it's much easier to become infected than it is to get rid of malware, and may think twice about his internet activities.
Welcome to BC, and remember, our Members are always here to help you.

John

Thanks for the welcome.
Should have mentioned he is 11, fairly bright kid, but not patient enough I think to read and follow instructions should he ask a question here. Type of kid that learns faster by watching how its done rather than have it explained in words to him.
