Hello bleeping computer veterans and others,
I travel a lot with my laptop and have been on a network with my current job that seems to have either blocked things like symantec updates - or it has allowed something to get in that has stopped me from getting security updates and various other annoying things.
Of course, the IT guy here is always too busy trying to sell used photcopiers to the highest bidder or dealing with larger network problems to remember to help deal with viruses on individual computers, evne though he's sittin gright opposite me and I ask him at least 3 times a day to help me out.
I've removed nasty viruses before with telephone help of expert friends but am no longer close enough to any experts to be able to call them for help. So....i have to learn how to do this myself.
If i don't get the protocols right on this site, please forgive me. I'll learn about this as I go too.
So, I hope there is help available!
