OK, thanks. i tried the Geek U once, but truthfully, i was kinda overwhelmed and didn't know where to begin. but i do want to try again. i just want to make sure i have the time and concentration it deserves. and with the open source softwares, i really think any kind of GNU/Linux is a masterpiece of its own, but i would like to customize it. is there a program you use to modify it, or do you actually rewrite the program?

Hey Sorry I have been away for a little bit...

Anytime you are ready to commit to the training I'm sure everyone here would welcome you back with open arms... The malware forum is definitely our busiest sub forum here...

I understand that 80 can be a bit much currently for a HDD... Here is a link to a 320gb wd with 16mb of cache.

And also a link to a Hitachi 320gb with 16mb of cache...

Please keep in mind these may not be the exact interface you need just an idea to send you in the right direction...

As for your your question about Linux and customizing it. I don't my self play with "the code" I have enough work right now with out playing with that also... May be there is a tool, but I'm going to figure the best way is to find someone that knows how to manipulate the code in Linux "properly" and follow their lead...

Hope this helps Good luck

these do look really nice.
but sadly my mom ordered the other one i showed already (i don't have a credit card) and i didn't expect her to order it so soon. but i probably will still try to buy one of these soon. so thank you very much for your suggestions. :) and i must say, mint Linux is the nicest i have ever seen (though truthfully I've only had four). but i don't quite understand how you install games/programs on it. i think it is an amazing OS, i guess i just don't know how everything works yet. i should probably work on that before trying to learn to write anything. And i am going to start GeekU again, im just not sure when. so why dont all the people with malware issues just use something like malwarebytes?

If Malware removal was a simple as running one program and it would get all infections "then there would not be a place in the world for malware specialists."

Malware\viruses are constantly evolving... some infections require several different tools and several approaches to properly eliminate the threat... These are all things that are learned in geek u...
and I really can't go into it further...

Good luck

Hope all works out for you...
