It started with some fears of someone on my computer and maybe spyware in my apt.  I went the over the edge route and deleted all my pics, documents, photos.  I had no idea what i was/am doing.  I was going in circles trying to locate worrisome files as i did not know how to properly search.  I had some .avi files that gave me particular concern as i didn't know where they came from.  This was followed by successive restores to the point my computer doesn't know whether i'm coming or going.  I can no longer find any of the worrisome concerns and it was my feeling that someone deleted everything i was finding that was concerning.  I wasn't well enough when there was still something i thought as identifiable to have a computer technician look at it.  I had the internet provider do a remote clean up but having restored successively probably restored all the 4? virus' he found.  I really wanted to get to the bottom of my worry one way or another.  Today i can barely locate the .avi files and some are emptied of bytes.  It was all very depressing, had i a computer friend i mighta made some headway.  As it is i'm left with a pretty much emptied computer and the resolve not to go the route of storing stuff, but still want my security.

Hi myles1 :)


Are you concern of restoring or deleting files in your computer out of infection? Please post the operating system being used (Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or 8)? Are you the only user from this computer and is it password protected?
