I did something to my laptop last night (AKA hiiii there mister virus, I think and everything goes kinda safe mode). I did a full system restore with a back up file. I think I need to run a virus scan on my files... Any free programs you guys can suggest? AVG links too, because I'm failing on that front, and I'm all frazzled at the moment.

@_____@ I dunno what to do. I could go to the Temple tech center for help but... You know, personal things porn and other things. :/ DNW other people in there.

I'm sorry I can't help (hello, I'm a Mac and I'm dumb because of it), but isn't it funny how, at this point, I would rather someone rummage through my drawers and in my bedroom or medicine cabinet then have them look at my hard-drive?

I have a pact with a friend that if either of us die (knock on wood) that we will wipe each others hard drives before our parents get to them.

Good luck with the computer.

Malwarebytes antivirus




AVG Free to be used IN CONJUNCTION.

That'll get the job done.

I second Malware bytes, and it runs in safe mode in Windoes which I have founf to be helpful in getting some nasty carp out of systems.

When I had to save my computer, the tech guy put Avast security on it. I've never heard of it before then, but it's worked like a charm.
