I am new here. I have known about HJT for sometime but in the past since I was laser focused primarily on gaming I wouldn't install any antivirus or firewall that wasn't already installed in windows. I felt that in XP the system would degrade anyway and I felt compelled to re-format-re-install every 3 or 4 months so I wasn't afraid of loosing much data due to a virus or trojan. I also found that most of my prior problems dealing with security was in the early 2000's I found that Norton and all the other antivirus software was poorly engineered and was causing conflicts and system performance issues to the point I abandoned protection entirely.

I am Air Conditioning Contractor in Southern California. I play guitar and read and write and toy around on the net.
I recently decided to manage my own retirement fund rather than have it warehoused somewhere and find that investing in companies isn't as easy as pulling the slots. So I'm pondering taking what little I have left the mortal hit I took last year and take it to Vegas. There I can buy a few rounds booze for all my hookers and have at least a good nite.

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Also, don't forget to check out the Tutorials.
There's a lot of very useful information, in there.
