This site saved me today. Thanks so much. Does anyone have a recommendation on a free or inexpensive virus protection program? I have been running the free AVG and Malwarebytes but still contracted the dreaded Windows Recovery trojan horse. I will admit though that my Malwarebytes was out of date. Had I keep it current, would it protect me from future trojan horse infestations?
