Good Morning all!

I'm a 40-something Michigan-ian, with degrees in Chemistry and Electronic Engineering and Computer Technology.
My recent EECT studies have led to multiple certifications [Comp TIA A+, Network+ etc].

And I've done something appallingly stupid.

I did knowingly install malware onto my computer. I knew better, but I was driven by trivial ulterior motives, and I reasoned that I had enough expertise to remove anything that I was foolish enough to install. Naturally I was ignoring the fact that chasing down malware can be time-intensive, and if malware was that easy to fix, it simply wouldn't be the serious threat that we know it to be.

I'm looking forward to working with you all. Hopefully I can be more help to you than I am to me. :busy:

Getting malware is easy.
Getting rid of malware is hard.

I am sure BC can help you.
