Hello Everyone,

As you can see, everyone calls me Michaelis. I have a Toshiba Intel Celeron 900 Laptop (it is at least a year and a half old now)and was hoping that someone could teach me about this computer. To be more specific, I want to know the in's and out's of this Toshiba. The only real thing I know how to do with it is find simple/basic answers or solutions to fixing it if I get some stupid virus and I am able to navigate through it.

I do not understand what 2.2Ghz means or what it displays for someone that does know. I am still trying to figure out what 64-bit is to a computer. Is anyone willing to share any information on how to do more with this Toshiba?

While if you ask specific questions we'll be happy to try to answer them, you may find it easier to just use Google. Ask the question on Google and receive an IMMEDIATE answer. That's what I'd do, anyway.

The only reason I am asking of this now is because I just got done fixing my computer from the "Win 7 Security 2012" scam and I literally thought I was a lost cause. Now I am looking for the best protection software that I may be able to get. So far the Malwarebyte software helped significantly and saved me. By the way, is there any good protection software that I should be looking into? Google never gets me a good answer.

MalwareBytes is not an anti virus application. If you do not have a good anti virus app installed, you should do so. There are many good choices.

Free vs. Fee: Free and Paid Antivirus Programs Compared: http://www.pcworld.com/article/210589/free_vs_fee_free_and_paid_antivirus_programs_compared.html

Malwarebytes is an excellent on demand malware scanner and will compliment a good anti-virus program in above comparison.
