Hello to all of you!
Perhaps I should give a brief background about my computer knowledge and where it came from, and a short history of my business and what it does as I am retired basically, and often have time to devote to Folding@Home where I've been a contributor for some 7 years and counting. I am experienced in Windows, the Mac OS from OS 7.x.x through the current version Mac OS , and a bit of everything else in-between. I also build computer systems, for friends and family and the occasional commercial venture of local retail businesses in my community where I am known as sort of a computer "whiz" who can readily answer most questions quickly and to the point if it involves basic System processes in the two OS's I'm familiar with, and general topics from what video card to buy, current chassis configurations and what works best within a given budget, etc.
I am trying to rid my office server of some kind of malware attack at this time, as the attack has rendered said server inop at this time, as i cannot trust it to perform any of its usual functions without it shutting down without warning, restart without notice, crash, Blue Screen of some type I've never seen before now, and other anomalies...so down one server in an office with 3 PC OEM builds, a MacBook Pro, and a fleet of devices from the gamut of cell phones, iPads, and the like being administered chiefly by this server I am giving a brief explanation about, so all admin jobs are on hold presently also.
I am a retired former high-end automobile industry executive, sales manager, general manager, and all sorts of job consults, lectures and get to know sessions for new products; prior to that I was a Working Press reporter for the long range of Journalism's professional organizations from daily newspapers, to the Copley Press, stringer for the Associated Press and UPI when it existed; I have a BA degree, Journalism, from one of the West Coast's leading universities known for its Journalism program, in BCA and written press both, was an active tournament tennis player for some 30-or-so years, teaching Pro before and during that. In short I've had a very active professional life and tennis has opened many doors for me where other venues would most likely fear to tread in or upon.
My business is related to my outside interests other than the above topics, namely photography (semi-Pro in nature), and coaching people online to use AP style writing so their topics are presented with impact and a wide open door for commentary when posting online topics or business structured situations. I work with computing when I feel like it or am asked to contribute to some topic, forum, or media venture from things like the music business--both retail and the recording industry where I maintain many close friends and contacts...that pretty much sums up what I've done to this point in life, and other than being a published author of more than a million and a half (1.5Million) words in the legitimate press, my university's and high school publications and the like. So that is me, and I will now go about searching for the proper Forum to humbly and hopefully post easy to understand questions about my topic here, and bid you all adieu for the present.
I apologize for the typos in this introduction but I wanted to get this handled before the dinner hour here, and will post my problem afterward as I've had a busy day and am hungry, somewhat exhausted physically and mentally, and I just didn't take the necessary time to correct any/all mistakes in this post. My bad, sorry about that...
