Hi,
I'm adupuis and I just joined this community. Why? 'Cause I have a virus. Actually, an unwanted and unknown anti virus program pupped up on my screen and told me I had a bunch of trojans, spyware, and all kinds of unpleasantness. Now I have to deal with it. Hence, my presence here.

I also see that there is an opportunity to learn more about malware and other such animals, which intrigues me to no end. I have a lot of computer knowledge behind me, but this malware world is one that scares me and I've been pretty ignorant to it's effects 'til recently.

I look forward to meeting you all virtually, and I'll start by visiting the various forums in order to find an answer to my current infestation.

Talk to you later.

Hello and welcome. Yes malware is getting to be quite a serious issue. If you need help make a topic in the Am I Infected forum.
Thanks for joining us.

Hi. I'm glad I found this site. I'm going to try some of the basic cleaning steps first then check out your forums. However, since this 10+ yr old computer is now snail slow and keeps "Not responding" I'm going to take a break as I have not the patience. :flowers: I used to be a medical transcriptionist and typed pretty fast, hence the name. I'll try to give you a break and go it on my own as long as I can. I hate for something to get the best of me. Hopefully I won't end up throwing the computer out a window. Ha Ha! :trumpet: What I've read so far seems helpful and it's nice to know I can ask for some guidance if needed. :thumbsup: Thanks.

Hope you're having a Happy Labor Day!!
