Hi, my name is James and I have been an independent computer consultant for 8 years after being an IT administrator for various large companies for about twenty years.
A substantial part of my business is helping other small businesses and home users with support and troubleshooting of their computers/networks and often find myself viewing this forum for help with the latest nasties that plague my clients.

After lurking for quite some time now, I feel it is appropriate to actually get an account and say "Hi" and maybe give back some help for all that I have gotten from reading the posts here.

Virus and malware infections are brought to my attention at a steady pace but once every year or so there is an explosion. Since mid December of 2011 I have seen one of those explosions :)
Many people have tasked me with helping them remove viruses that almost all come from viewing a web page while having an older version of Java on their PC or laptop so as my first contribution to the forum I would like to say...

Make sure that your Java plugins are up to date!

Hello and :welcome: to Bleeping Computer.

Be sure to check out the New User Orientation and the excellent Tutorials.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

—George Bernard Shaw
