Hello to all and thank you for this website. I know you are all volunteers so I'll make this short. I don't know a lot about computers especially my HP Pavilion 20 that came with WIN 8 and I upgraded to WIN 8.1 which is why I've joined this site. I'm looking to get rid of malware (don't worry I know that's a separate thread in a separate forum) but more importantly I'm here to learn the basics of my computer, like a PC 101 class. I also joined so I can keep up to date with the latest scams and infections going around. I know when it comes to internet safety there are no guarantees because everything is not in the users control. But I figure if I put in some time to learn the basics and pair that with staying current on internet threats, I'll stay afloat longer than the average. Especially since I've been told by 2 resources that I trust (Microsoft and MalwareTips communities) that this is the place to be if your looking for knowledge and removal because you guys usually found out about stuff before everyone else. So I thank you all for your time, brains, and most importantly your patient. Especially when it comes to assisting someone like me that lacks "know how", which I know can turn into a hair pulling and head banging experience, lol. So I truly thank you all and may many blessings come your way as you have blessed us all with the giving of yourselves.
