Hi!

My name is Jeana, and I do a considerable amount of desktop support both for friends (pro bono) and people who will pay me to do it (yay - beating Win 95 into submission all those years ago has paid off!). When looking into new and troubling problems, this forum has often come up in Google as users post similar issues.

I have a great deal of admiration for the volunteers here. You all are very knowledgeable, and have made almost idiot-proof instructions to help people fix complicated computer problems in a medium where you never meet face-to-face - this is immensely impressive!

I'd like to learn more about the steps you all take, the programs you use, and what you look for in log files. I do pretty well helping people out with what I do know, but the structured support on bleepingcomputer makes me aspire to get better! Is there an orientation area for people who are interested in learning to volunteer rather than needing help themselves?

If I can master your processes, I'd like to help contribute with troubleshooting - eliminating obnoxious and dangerous malware is a lofty and worthwhile goal, and I'd be glad to be a part of the solution :)

Hope to get to know some of you all as I wander around the fora!

Best,
Jeana

Welcome to BC!
We do have a malware removal training programme, where you learn to understand data from specialised applications and provide methods of malware removal. Read more at the link following: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic86678.html.

You should perhaps also take a look at our Self-help Malware Removal Guides.

Cheers,
John

Cool, thanks for the link! Guess it's time to dig in and see what I find :)

Best,
Jeana
