Hi ..since I am pretty much a computer idiot with minimal skills and the ability to lock up any computer with one keystroke I'm glad to be here! I was prompted to join by the constant messages that my computer is at risk so let us analyze it for  fee, clean up the operating system and remove malware to remove threats and run faster. The last time they scared me enough to let them clean it up so  I decided it was time to get a little more educated on all that.  Glad to be here

Being a rookie not sure I should be making any recommendations. I just had a reply that those guys might not be approved by better business so that might be a concern. I would post a request for recommendations for what you want to achieve on the forums to get some more professional and experienced advise. best of luck!

Welcome to both of you -- I'm new here, too. The people here are quite friendly and exceptionally helpful. Ehlien's suggestion is accurate; if you visit the Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware, and Privacy Software sub-forum, you will find useful threads stickied at the top. Nevertheless, if you can explain what the problems you are experiencing are (as they might go beyond just infections), I'm sure someone will be apt to assist you.

Hi there, I'm new to the forums as well. Usually when I get a virus I just back up my important data and do a factory reset on my PC and that will fix the problem every time without the use of expensive software. Oh and welcome to the forums by the way!!
