I just opened my account. I was turned on to Combofix from an IT friend of mine a while ago. I accidentally uninstalled it and when I went to reinstall it I thought I'd start an account. I am fascinated by computers but at 62 yrs old and only getting my first computer 9 yrs ago I have had to do a lot of catching up. I took an A+ course and part of a NET+ course but am mostly self-taught...and we all know what that means!! Just review my quote: "accidentally uninstalled" if you get my drift.

I expect to provide you all with some laughs with my dumb questions down the road, but all in all I do okay. I've kept an old Dell 8200 running in perfect mechanical health all this time and do all of my own mechanical repairs and upgrades. After nine years and $2000 total dollars of ram, hard drive, graphics cards, power supplies etc.I now have a very fine $500 dollar computer!! What can I say...this old dinosaur is almost part of the family.

I have a question or two to post in the appropriate forum later, but for now I'll just go and reinstall Combofix.

Thanks for having me on board

Hello and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer.

Be sure to check out the New User Orientation and the excellent Tutorials.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
