Hi, everyone!
I am a new member. I have a chronic condition I want to work on here. I scan my computer daily with all sorts of free programs that are supposed to eliminate this or that. I haven't found any viruses, but have deleted a lot of "spyware." I have been doing this for years. The problem is, occasionally I get in to trouble doing this (!). Then I scurry all over the web looking for help, and there is a LOT of help out there. Other than the HP site and Microsoft sites, I am not sure which are trustworthy. Some programs I hear and read a lot about, so assume they are not harmful--like Ad Aware, HiJack This, AVG antivirus, etc.
I have an HP laptop dv9700. I run Vista, and use it to surf, email, occasionally use MS Word for papers, and shopping.
I am looking forward to learning a lot here. If anyone ever has any suggestions, please let me know. My email is:

Oh, I use Comcast service, and use AVG and AdAware as my main protection. I do not use the programs that come with Comcast--I believe by CA.

Hello and 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.

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
