I was in a malware removal school for several months few years ago.

These things are enough. I don't need an anti virus.
Thanks for the details.

I've seen others say that they don't need an AV app - I just like to ask how they know that they are not infected. As you know, a computer can be infected and the antivirus app may never detect it (hence the numerous offline scanners). Again, I'm not attempting to change your mind. Thanks again for detailing how you stay safe.


I somehow missed the last screenshot that you posted. Are you talking about the fold/thumbnails being in the wrong spot? Nope, never seen that, but most every computer that I touch stays in the details view. How does that folder look if you copy it to the test profile?

Thanks Rich but I already mentioned I'm not doing that. I just kinda feel a problem will arise with that transfer and stuff and my initial problem is not big enough to go through the trouble of transfering everything to a new account.

In the screenshot everything is fine except for the folder "gif proekti i pipi". As you can see it's kind of a visual glitch, the name of the folder mixes with the actual folder icon. it gets fixed if I scroll down to the bottom and go back up. Also it does not happen always. I thought this visual glitches were supposed to happen to XP only -_-.

Nah, I don't believe in those. I mean, they do exist but with my knowledge and experience and preventive browser add ons I mentioned earlier, I do not believe I can get infected. The article is kinda contradictory though because it makes you think they talk about "get infected without even knowing it" but the real world example shows how for one to get infected needs to actually AGREE and INSTALL the malware.

I use the computer for banking and lots of forums, games and stuff and I wasn't compromised so far.
