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.
