hello all, new to BC forum, grateful for all the helpful info..
I was on antoher site and got lots of great help, and now have another question. I was reading the post regarding simple steps to keep your computer secure.
My question is this.. my computer was infected with some stuff, and after running some programs and posting a HJT log along with a AVG log, is my computer safe now??
The reason I ask, is that I am now afraid to do anything personal such as banking, because I feel that there is something in my computer that could be sending my personal information somewhere...I am being paranoid??
I am running the following:
AVAST anti virus (which when I run gives me a list of unable to scan list--dont know what to do about these items)
Ad Aware SE
Zone Alarm firewall
I also have the following installed:
I just changed over to Firefox as my internet browser
My system is running Windows XP SP2
Also started having problems with WMP. Get a window saying decoder is not installed, used to be OK.
Just bought this system last August and runs OK, but not as fast as it use to.
Thanks, and hope its OK if I put so much stuff into my intro post.
