Hello everyone. I got this site from Neil Rubenking, a PC Magazine editor who I contacted when I could not get rid of NEWDOT even though I had spent weeks trying to and finally got Symantec to call me. We removed it in 15 minutes. The malware was gone, but I could not eliminate the registry calls that propagated the error message every time I booted. Subsequently, three other sites from who I purchased or acquired anti spyware programs also contacted me including New.net.

I am a 68 year old "retired" (?) techie who now helps residents of planned adult communities with their computer problems for a small hourly fee. If I charged what I used to charge corporations, there would be a high rate of heart attacks in my community.

For fun (??????) and frustration (!) I build high end gaming machines for me, for clients, and for friends. Talk about a support free world!

Despite going with the top rated Security Suites, I seem to get one or two serious spyware or virus attacks every year, though I have a hardware firewall, software firwall, a second NAT router, anti virus software, and four anti spyware programs. I guess I spend too much time on the computer.

My greatest claim to fame this year has been eliminating the dreaded "nvlddmkm has stopped responding and reconnected" problem with NVidia grafics drivers. I posted the solution on several technical sites, but nobody from Nvidia bothered to send me a thank you note. Oh well ....

Hopefully you will find some spare time to become an active Member here at BC, since there are usually more problem-havers than problem-solvers in the forums.
