Hey folks,

Been playing with the internet and various forms of online conversation for twenty years, done some troubleshooting for specific programs and used search engines to find help, but I've never used a more general site like this before.

Came here after a fairly benign encounter with ransomware. It was on the HTPC, which had nothing of exceptional value on it, but I'm quarantining it until I get it cleaned up. My usual tool, malwarebytes, didn't clean up everything and I figured I'd check in here and ask for some help. Forum topic to follow.

I'm friendly and enjoy helping others, and my intent is to contribute as well as benefit from this forum.
