Yeah I just told them I will reformat there hard drive. After that I am going to find their external (god knows where thats at) then I will make a schedule back up. Its simply amazing how often they get infected with virus's and there all from facebook. I have avast and malware bytes on their computer because those are the two that are free and in my opinion work just as well as any other combo. It baffles me how one person can keep making the same mistakes.

Facebook is fine, long as you dont start clicking things your unsure about lol (like alot of people do) But yeah honestly thats probably the best thing to do. But do make a scheduled backup for future occurrences

You can install MSE with Avast - for additional protection. They work together well. Threatfire Test with MSE and Avast 5 |

LoL yep that'll sure do it.. Lots of users dont know how important anti virus, firewall, anti malware are. I even used to be one.

Fact is lots of users turn off their protection because it seems to bog down their computer. But you should never turn off any of your protection unless your not connected to the internet.

I agree if you dont want your computer bogged down upgrade your specs its alot less expensive then replacing loss data or buying a whole new computer.

Yep, In my opinion if your going to be on the internet and dont have a suitable computer that will run some good protection software you shouldn't be on the internet. But i understand everyone isn't made of money but this is 2011 software has come along way, computer prices have went down. Should not be a problem anymore!

I don't think much about virii because I image my system, and can always put it back to before the virus hit. Always worked perfectly. I use Win firewall and MSE. But I've heard there are virii that partition the HD or SSD. And virii that go to non-system drives. Anybody actually run across one...
