I've been a follower of this site for a while now and have used the vast resources of this site to safely remove some very annoying malware, thanks to the guides. Only recently have I actually become a member when I came across a situation that could not be corrected through the guide. Gringo, my designated savior, came to my aide and was extremely patient and confident in handling my issues. I'll admit it, I'm one of those that know a little bit about computers and I'm often the designated help desk for friends and family, so I really made an effort to bite my tongue and to "trust" in Gringo. When one of my drivers got corrupted and my system could not boot ... yes, I'm embarrassed to say I panicked. Gringo calmly kept at my issue, offered a new plan of attack, and I'm proud to say my system is currently virus and malware free.

So again, thank you Gringo for your wonderful assistance and advice. Thank you BC for a fantastic site just bursting with knowledge. I've treated this site the same way a selfish child often treats a parent, putting it aside and only coming to it when I need something. But I see now BC has more to offer than just virus and malware removal and I'm hoping to be a contributing member of this community.

My other reason for posting, and perhaps I didn't look well enough, is there a location where this site accepts contributions from its members? If not, maybe a store where BC offers merchandise that contribute to the running of the site?

Thank you again for a wonderful site.

We have a "BC Store", but it is non-profit to BC and solely for the enjoyment of Bleeping Computer fans.

The BC Store is right h e r e.

The many people who volunteer their time to run BC and to help others with computer problems always appreciate---more than one might suspect--- a kindly thank you from someone who has benefited from their efforts.
Thanks for taking the time to write your kind words,
John
