I just spent $162.00 for a complete overhaul to my PC. I had a Trojan work it's way into my system and no amount of software nor tech help would work to fix it. I found out after several hundred dollars of tech help that there are many scams claiming to be techs that are not A-1 techs. They fumble around your PC remotely, as was my case, and create bigger problems and never fixed my problem. I couldn't get windows firewall to work was my basic problem. The Trojan was stuck in there at purchase several years ago. Fortunately, I was blessed to have gotten my money back from the scammers. I would like to mention the businesses but afraid it's inappropriate to condemn them as they may be capable of doing simple fixes. My live tech said that with today's problems with hackers it's getting to be almost a must to have your new PC checked out for viruses before using. Even the best security systems were incapable of preventing hackers from creating "work-arounds" and leaving link files which made them unidentifiable unless the PC was swept clean and new OS re-installed. The live tech said his work is not guaranteed forever to prevent future re-occurrences of virus invasions.
Too bad our world has gotten so corrupt that some folks aren't happy unless they're creating havoc for others. Or, they are unhappy and their misery wants company.

It isn't that they are trying to make you unhappy or create havoc. It is all about money these days.
