That's when the help stopped.
After nearly a week I bumped my thread. Admin responded that I should re-run a virus scan and post a new HJT file. I did.
After 5 days with no response, I bumped the thread.
Another 3 days later, I bumped it again,
Another 5 days and another bump.
It's been 4 days since then. If you think I'm making this up or omitting how pesky or belligerent I must have been, then judge for youself: http://www.geekstogo...d_of-t8841.html
So now I am completely disillusioned with this site. At first I thought it was great, but now I know this site is another case of "you get what you pay for". I probably should have known that from the start, but I was desperate and too broke to pay someone for the help.
In the final analysis, there is a bright point. I was forced to learn some things on my own and I ended up pretty much fixing the last few problems myself (at least I hope I did). So while I'm not at all happy with my overall experience here, at least I've learned some technical things that might help me in the future.
