Reading thru numerous pages of problems/issues on the Malware Topic pages I find that many folks have not followed G2G's request to follow the steps listed on the "Start Here" link at the top of the FORUMS page prior to posting a request for help or a HJT log. I will be the first to admit that I did not visit or follow the instructions on the "Start Here" page when I first visited G2G last year for assistance. Assume I was in a panic state at the time and did not read/follow instructions as I should have (my bad). However, on my second visit for Malware assistance, much later, I did follow the recommendations on the "Start Here" page step by step (took a dang long time to complete though) beore posting and when I posted my HijackThis log along w/ other recommended software logs my G2G tech declared my PC clean and good to go. That effort, solving my own problem by utilizing expert advice and solutions, saved a concerned and helpful soul alot of personal time & effort, as it should be. This was my problem, not his.
In a nutshell, while the G2G Staff may seem to the average www pilgrim, like me, to have nothing better to do than fix our problem(s) 24/7, that could not be farther from the truth. They help us because, well I guess each needs to answer this for themselves, I believe they care about helping folks in trouble like you and me. The point is they care and they help without condition or concern for time! Bottom line is they are here for us but do not abuse their free, and unpaid, assistance. Their time is limited (family, work, sports, computers, etc.). So.... don't ask for help before you've explored all reasonable resources and personal effort to solve your problem. The "Start Here" recommendations truly work!
My sincere appreciation for the G2G Staff
