Howdy from Texas!
First let me say how thankful I am for the admins and volunteers at bleepingcomputer.com! We would not be able to survive the digital jungle without you.
I work with international students and have a background in Chemistry. I started writing code on a TSR-80 back in who knows what year and have tinkered with PC's ever since.
I am an intermediate user. My friends come to me for help fixing computers and I, in turn, come to the experts and forums for help. Trojans/root kits seem to be the bane of my existence. I can fix most problems, but have not have a lot of success with malware that hijacks OS files.
I am trying to help my boss, who live in another city, fix his computer...it has all the signs of a trojan and it giving him fits. So, that is pretty much it for now. Off to the malware forum!
