Greg ... Simply, I don't understand how you explain things. I thought I explained how frustrated I get when I can't understand something for the 3rd time. I said it's not you it's me. I also said you were impatient but I totally understood why you'd be impatient with me. I'm thick headed. Didn't I say all this? So I'm sorry that I got impatient with trying to understand your directions becuz I felt like shyt about myself! People explain differently. I just happen to understand Bill. Now I'm uncooperative? wth? Don't tell me that I'm ungracious when I completely explained why you can't help me.

Please be a little more cautious than you have been when surfing the net or downloading anything. Take a little extra time and ask yourself "Is this safe? Do I really need this? Do I know and trust the website or author? How many other people use this application?" After a while you get conditioned to automatically ask those questions. I still have to think twice before hitting the download button.

I asked before, but it might have been buried -
Do you have an external drive that you can use to back up your system?
Now would be a very good time to create a system image.
Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup
The blue note box and the yellow tip box at the beginning related to keeping multiple images. You're only going to make the one, so you can skip those tow boxes.

But do read the green information and the pink warning boxes to familiarize yourself with the process.

Then just follow the steps and write the image to an external drive.

Other than that please check your Window Update settings. I'm not sure where we left them, there was a lot going on back then.

I think it's best if you automatically update Windows on a schedule (Daily at 03:00 AM is the default).

I officially return the machine to your care.

Good job!

Bill

Hi. Yes, I have an external hard drive. I just read over the link you gave me. I'm sure I'll be able to handle it. I checked and windows update is on the 3 a.m. schedule. Thank you for all the time you spent on this. I appreciate it

Here you are...

SFdoClean.bat will remove all of the portable utilities, reports and shortcuts used in this thread to clean up the viruses.
Download SFdoClean.bat
A few notes and then I'm done and you're done

I left Old Time - TFC on your system (Downloads\TFC) at Jacee's suggestion.

The batch file removes the few Desktop icons that were created for some of the installed programs (superantispyware for example). If you need to run any of those programs, the shortcut is still on your start menu > all programs.

And we are done! Be safe, be cautious and keep your machine clean.

Excellent - the system image might save you a lot of time if ever needed (hopefully not though)

Ok, good - Windows Update is automatic and on schedule.

You are most welcome.

Please click on the middle icon (group of 3 in the upper right hand corner - it's a scale) on any of Jacee's posts - she really helped both of us... big time! This is a way to say thank you to her.
