Hi, my nickname is JM and I've been mending computers since 1980!
I've been a monitor of BC for a long time, but I've now surfaced on the forums.
I often get PC's in to fix, and I usually install & run CCleaner, then MBAM, followed by ADWcleaner and occasionally some other tools. Combofix was a silver bullet, and I even donated to sUBs for his work. Waiting for Win8 Combofix!
Also use HiJackThis for analysis and some tools such as delete on reboot.
