Gary is the name in Seattle. Recently my desktop crashed and had to spend a week restoring my critter of a machine. Had so many backups I didn't lose data but I harvested a load for frustration-hope it doesn't morph into cynicism-in the restoration process. :thumbsup:

Rediscovered the rather overwhelming volume of deceit and fraud that is on the net. Programs get installed on my machine secretly to virus infections that are evil. I've ended up with a file that is labeled a virus and can't seem to eliminate it.

I've improved at finding solutions on the net for computer problems, consequently searched the net for a fix and discovered BC. I hope it's as good as it looks as that is why I've joined this outfit because I need assistance.

I've run combo.exe and have a log file which I will turn over to a helpful soul when I find the correct forum.

Thanks for the service you provide.

There's a lot of very useful information, in there.

Good luck with your log and please be patient waiting for a response

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
