Stopping by to say hi, I'm a newbie here. Having some problems with both my computer and laptop. Let my 20, 21 & 23 year olds use the old computer. Found 356 spyware problems, 365 adware problems (ya, kind of weird the numbers were so close) and a trojan horse. Don't remember the name of the trojan horse and know I didn't remove it right. Still have some problems with chinese language showing up when doing certain tasks. Ex: when reading the time in the yahoo messenger im, it shows it in chinese.
Would love it if anyone knew how I can find out whats wrong. I really like digging through my computer and seeing if I can fix it myself, but know that I am in NO way an expert...thats why I came here.
My laptop has a couple temp files I can't delete which is kind of concerning me.
I will go read the new user orientation center to see what I need to do first.
