Some examples of categories are Malware Removal - HiJackThis Logs Go Here (for spyware, virus, pop-ups), Windows XP, 2000, 2003, NT (for general Windows issues), Hardware, Components and Peripherals (video cards, RAM, overheating, etc), and Applications (trouble with software). After you've browsed all the categories and selected one, click on it to view the topics in that category. Please only post your question in one category. If necessary, you can request it be moved to another category later.

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go!

For help removing a virus, you'll want to head to the Malware section of this forum.

Specifically, follow all the instructions in this link (click here).

Step 5 will explain how you post a log. Make sure you start a new topic in the Malware forum (click here).

One of our experts will review your log and help you clean your machine like new :)

Just beware the forum is very busy, please don't reply to your own thread as it will look like somebody is already helping you. If it is 3 days or longer with no reply, feel free to post a New Topic in the Waiting Room (click here).

Cheers

Troy

If it's been closed, you would need to send a PM to the staff member who closed it.

If you can't identify who closed it, try sending the PM to a moderator or admin (be sure to include the link). If it was closed for a reason and is not for reopening, they'll let you know.

If the thread isn't closed, though, you are able to edit your own post. Just delete the information you no longer want displayed. :)

If the thread is closed, then you're stuck.

Hi guys ^^, my second time (I think) around geekstogo and I've managed to get myself into a strange pickle =P.. anyhow I'm posting out here cause I'm faced with a dilemma.
I've looked about the forums for information pertaining to my problem but none really did fit the bill, and then I tried looking for a section to ask about which section I should post my problem...
Yeah, nested dilemma =P anyhow here's the "problem" :
I wanted to do a... diagnosis of my computer as of now, something like a.. full body checkup at the hospital, yearly or something.. so I was wondering if its allowed for something like this to be posted in the malware section.. So, i went off to look for a place to ask whether i should post it there, and/or if its allowed =P.. So i narrowed it down to Offtopic and Site Orientation and FAQ, Offtopic doesnt seem right and this seems to be more of a FAQ-ish sort of thing so here i am, giving a long narrative for something so simple, so i'll just ask it straight out @[email protected]

Are we allowed to post logs/ask for diagnosis' for machines/systems which do not seem to have an apparent problem? If so, where should such postings be made at? ^^
thanks again guys =P please forgive the rant~ it just flowed off my fingers @[email protected]

Yes mate it should be fine, just follow all the instructions in the thread and then post a log. Make sure to tell the helper you're just chasing a quick health check and they'll let you know if there's any nasties hiding in there or if you're running clean. I should think the Malware Staff would be fine with that. :)
