Newbie who found you a day late and $129 dollars short

Post by wordperfectqueen on 18th August 2009, 3:13 am

I'm a newbie who just had a vicious malware/trojan on her laptop. After 4 hours of trying to deal with it myself, I ended up calling AVG support and paying $129 dollars. Ironically, I have fixed at least six (other people's) computers when they have gotten virus' so I'm not computer illiterate. I was so frustrated that I've been out looking for several programs to counteract these criminals and their virus games when someone recommended this site.
:smile2: I only wish I had found you two days ago.

Thank You! I am so glad to have found this site! Actually our local online newspaper Goldrushcam.com recommended this site for dealing with the Personal Antivirus Virus that is going around. My daughter had it this summer visiting her Dad in NH and then a local friend just got it. Luckily I had a basic idea of what to do but I am so grateful that it all led me to this site. Thanks again for being here!
