Hi,

 

I go by the name "hamguy73" first of all because I have been a ham radio operator for over 50 years and the "73" is used with  Morse Code at the end of a message and it means "Best Regards".

 

I am on this site because I read about it in Consumer's Reports as a help in removing/eliminating virus's and malware from computers.

 

Lately I have been plauged by either malware and/or virus's and I am interested in removing them. I just removed a program that somehow got installed on my computer that would cause a window to open up advertizing several Player's like Media and FLV Player every time I clicked on a link on the web. It was lyric somethng, and when I uninstalled it. suddenly I had control of my computer again. Still have one problem that it didn't clear up in that I can't right click on the desktop and go to "New" and open a folder. That "folder" isn't listed anymore as an option, but I will try and find the proper forum to list that problem in.

 

Anyway, nice to be here, lets face it at my age iit's nice to be anywhere.

 

73,
