You can probably guess by the length of the logs that even a single reply in the malware removal forum can be quite time consuming. However, if you've run some scans, you know how long they can take. The work is not one-sided. This collaborative arrangement makes online removal possible.
I feel pretty confident saying the help you receive here is better than if you were to hire someone, however if you were to pay for malware removal -- expect to pay $100-$200. People helping you here are not doing this for a living. Mostly they enjoy the intellectual challenge, and enjoy helping others. Kind words often mean as much or more than cash. Helpers do use donations they receive for a variety of purposes. Whether upgrading their computer, or buying a new monitor, which allows them to better help; or maybe to take their significant other out to a much deserved night out in appreciation for time spent helping.
We don't track donations to helpers, however a number of years ago this site used to solicit donations directly. I think it's an acceptable analog. The range of donations were mostly $5-$100. With $5 and $100 being rare. Most donations were in the $10 - $40 range. Unfortunately, a low percentage of people donated. Many people like yourself probably don't want to risk to risk insult with a low donation amount, when in fact 1 person in 10 donating $5 equals to 1 person in 100 donating $50.
Donate whatever makes you feel comfortable. Express genuine appreciation for the help received. Please recommend the site to others.
