I was doing some trading on steam and I stupidly clicked a link that looked like a screenshot.  It downloaded a file, but I never opened or clicked the file.  I proceeded to get on my laptop and change pwords for my email and steam, and then (overkill mayeb?) I factory reset my pc.  Am I safe from the virus, and did I overkill with resetting my pc?  (all my items are still in my account)

Wow!  You waited a whole 1 1/2 hours.  Please have some patience.  IMHO, if you didn't run the .scr you are not infected.

Bumping your topic does not get you help any faster. You have to wait until someone who has knowledge of the issue actually sees your topic.

In fact, bumping may delay getting help because those who see the topic listed will see replies have been made which leads them to think you are already receiving help. They will ignore it find topics that have NO replies.

Your attitude goes a long way towards why you're not getting help. People read the thread and say to themselves I don't get paid. I do this because I want to help, but not if the person is going to be a jerk about it. And have an attitude with me. So yeah you might see it as a dead website. I see it as a thread stared by someone with an attitude right from the beginning and nobody wants to touch it.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)


A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

Since you feel this is a "dead website" I suggest you seek help elsewhere. Choose a place that will put up with your attitude and nonsense and don't care if you are a jerk.

lol saying dead website obviously is the only way to get people to respond. Lets be honest this website is pretty bad, they literally have 5 different download buttons on their page where you dowload antiviruses..

Since your attitude is lousy and is keeping someone from helping you this topic is closed.

If you have anything to say about the closure, send me a private message.
