OK, I am a 56 year old male, I started in IT when I was 17 so coming up to my 40th IT birthday.


I run a small IT consultancy in Luton England have a wife, two cats and diabetes.


On average I get between six and ten PC's per day to clean up and have never (so far) failed to clean one. I write code for a hobby/job and have four software products currently out there (fifth coming soon). I started writing code in COBOL but soon moved to C, QBasic and then Visual Basic which I still use from time to time. I made a small contribution to CPM (anyone remember CPM) but now I mostly write in HTML, jQuery and JavaScript with a smattering of SQL for good measure, though i usually ask at forums when the SQL stuff gets to boggy (I find the syntax illogical).


I like SciFi (surprise, surprise), not sleeping and tea; I hate advertising, android and any device that starts with i. I have a tablet but its like painting my front room thru the bloody letterbox .. awkward, though I have authored a web with it.


I will try to answer as many queries as I can but I would like to start by asking for your advice. I would like to ask a member of the BleepingComputer staff a question but which forum should I use?


OK, tea now then Gravity and Thor in that order .. sweet.

As I intimated in my welcome chunder I use this site regularly and consider ComboFix and ADW Cleaner my main arsenal for removing viruses. I have always recommended users visit this site to follow up on security issues and to dl CF and ADW for themselves if they get into grief again and aside from one plonker who installed, I think it was iLivid, there have been no problems.


My question is this, do you have any problem with me using your site this way?


I am extremely grateful for this resource and had I the moola I would make a contribution but sadly I have not.
