PC Overnighted to Hospital

The PC had to go to the hospital.  Since its insurance had lapsed and it had a preexisting condition I had to pay full out-of-pocket. After extensive surgery on 32 viruses/spyware and 508 registry errors, it was pronounced fit to go home.


Cubs Win!

  2. I am so impressed at the surgeons. In similar cases ours have recommended euthaenasia.

  5. I said love, I said pet, I said love, plenty of good free virus checkers out there. AVG works well for me. This may end up in your spam box.

  9. Some programs to help you prevent future problems: CC Cleaner will clean the cache. You can also repair broken keys in the register. It's free. Scroll down to look for the free download option: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/update?v=5.23.5808&l=1033&o=6.1W6

    Malwarebytes. Also free, will get rid of malware on your computer: https://www.malwarebytes.com/mwb-download/

    And your antivirus software should be kept up to date.

    I run these 3 scans every week.
