That's great news!

Thanks for posting back and letting us know. Once you get your machine set up the way you want I'd strongly suggest you invest in an external hard drive and make a system image. You could use the built in Win 7 imaging tool or any of several free products like Macrium free or Paragon free. If your computer ever gets infected again you could restore from the system image and be back up and running in about 30 minutes or less.

Excellent! Images have saved me on more than one occasion. My last image restore (earlier this morning) took less than 20 minutes.

Glad you got it sorted. Yes, a system image is nice to have since it gives you peace of mind knowing that in a worst case scenario, you have an option.

My desktop PC is getting on in years - it's a 3GHz P4 I bought back in '05 or so.

I'm in the market for a new desktop, and in my shopping around, I've come...
