Alrighty then. Now don't yell at me if I don't follow the rules
But, I think this is the right place. Community leaders are so demanding! <<-----sarcasm.
I've been at this for days. Exhausting. Okay, got a malware, some fake ad thing that snatched my firewall right before my very eyes. I had a Norton firewall and ongoing virus scan...... ...My exhsb is one of you types and he was going to just reinstall Windows after I was days trying to rid of it and then did a repair. I had files on there that I know have on a flash drive..that I spent painstaking days getting off...... After I did that, I followed your cocktail and blah blah end of that. BUT, whooda thunk. I can't get my dang data OFF.
So now, I want to clean up my system..I have had my share of infestation so thought I'd get all my data off..applications I don't need and spiff it up. I figured it might be a good thing if there are hiding trojans too because they seem to be never-ending....or will that even fix it? I've repaired, reinstalled, hosed it out,washed it off.. and my DATA won't go away. So much for spending 3 days tenderly retrieving it.
So, is uninstalling/reinstalling a better solution than just a repair? Is it more thorough? If so, any ideas how I might have it rip all the crap out? If I sit and uninstall the files and apps manually, it will still leave all of that sitting somewhere and I want it CLEAN. Or am I obsessing? Should I just sit and manually delete my files I want off? Am I rambling?? It's hotter than [bleep] here. I can't think straight.
thanks a lot...you guys are da bomb...debbie
someone please help me find the send button before i start crying...
