Hello to all, my name is Paul V. and I am a retired programmer who has just found this site while looking for help fixing an infected computer -- my fiance's this time.
I have many years of customer support and software development experience, first on Burroughs mainframes, then on Windows starting with Windows NT.
I regularly have friends and family ask me to help them with problem-plagued PCs, and they don't always understand that my expertise developing my own software doesn't usually help me when dealing with these problems. As I never tried to develop or deploy any kind of malicious software, and gratefully grew up as a computer person in the era before all this nastiness started, I am looking to the people on this site to help me learn more about these issues and help me with the occasional tough problem I encounter.
I have browsed through the site and look forward to using and learning from it.
Thanks to everyone in advance,
