Getting over a virus

No, I'm not sick, but if you remember, my PC was.  I've done some online searching, and found a site that sounded like it had things spelled out.  The problem is, I needed to do it on a weekend, and I was gone last weekend, so today was my chance.

The website that contained the helpful information was, which I found quite humorous, and it described my feelings to a T.  In researching "antivirus 2009 removal" I found Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, and it seemed to do more cleanup than anything else I'd tried.  

I ran it more than once, even though the first time seems to have caught it all.  I also ran Avast a few times, and it updated and found a thing or two new.  I ran it more than once, too.  So far, the computer is online and working normal so far.

I'm glad I didn't have to pay someone to fix a $200 computer.  It seemed ludicrous to do so.  I just hope that I'm right about it being fixed.  If not, I'll try again.  I'm pretty stubborn when it comes to working on my computer.

Glad you got it back to rights. Lou is good at fixing computers too!

You know, I almost asked you if that was the virus, because I had it also. And we got it from a kid's site. ::GRR::

I am so glad you got it fixed. Anti-Malware has done the best so far for us on a couple of things.
