I posted in HJT forum on the 18th that I was having browser redirects and a B.S. your computer is infected warning page opening up. And I have had no response yet. I was wondering, if I reinstalled XP would that get rid of both problems and is that something that I can do on my own.Or should I take it to a computer person ? ( I'm just a machinist who gets his puter info form XP for Dummies book and You Tube)
Or did I post it incorrectly ? ( posted at 0740 on the 18th )
