hi everyone,
as you may have already guessed,i'm new to this and was referred by a computer repair friend of mine who wastrying to help me rid my other pc of some malware i contracted from a dubious website(porn). <ahem>
sooooo,without anty further delay...if y'all'd be so kind as to help a dummy un-f*%# himself,i'd honestly appreciate it.
one site he recommended is malwarebytes,but when i yahoo! it,several come up. the one i chose (w/o reg. for) was for a fee-which i have no problem with,just that my buddy told me it was free. so i wanna make sure i was at the right place,and if i don't have to pay,well....
anyone with any info(and go ahead and make fun o' me,i deserve it for this),please send it over. i'd greatly appreciate it. plus,if you have download & implementation procedures,i'd appreciate that as well.
