Hello Weeksfamily7 and the entire BC user group,
As a new member, I echo your reasons for joining this forum and have found information and analysis from this site to be extremely helpful when resolving past bleeping computer problems, especially those which pertain to problematic and troubleshoot issues on a personal level beit family, friends and others.
Having an IT background, I’ve fixed many BC problems with various tools, search topic and analysis from PC forum or like discussions. Lately a never ending task which triggered this registration and posting has been providing personal PC support to my 80+yr old father. He’s an practicing attorney who regards the Internet as his personal library card and playground. It keeps him young, but for many of his Win XP/PC troubles which I find myself researching, I constantly consult many different knowledge bases and web resources to find a resolution/fix which gives him yet another “free -get out of Internet jail card”. He’s completely digital but can’t seem to prevent or avoid the perils of the Web and navigate the troubled waters of a digital world. If there’s a new/old virus, spyware/adware, malware, or other PC parasite to be found -he'll find it and expect it to get fixed.
Frankly, I just can’t keep up and having used the site owners valuable “rkill” process tools many a time to fix malware issues, I too look forward to gaining fresh insight, reference and tool assistance from the technical savvy users and SME’s which make up this community.
