Welcome to GeeksToGo, mattandme2

My name is Machiavelli and I'll try to fix your PC problems. If you are in SafeMode then print my instructions! Removing Malware on a computer can be very complicated. Malware (malicious software) is able to hide and so I may not be able to find it so easily. In order to remove Malware from you Computer, you need to follow my instructions carefully. Don't be worried if you don't know what to do, just ask me! Please stay in contact with me until the problem is fixed.

!NOTE! Please respect my volunteered time and stay with me until I declare your computer clean. If you are going to be delayed for a while, please let me know.

I am currently in training and my posts will need to be reviewed by an expert, so expect a slight delay between posts. :)

Illegal Software Warning

I noticed that you use illegal sofwate like keygens, cracks or something like that. We don't support illegal machines and because of that we will remove all the illegal Software in the Malware Removal Process. Believe me, I'll find ALL of the illegal software. If you don't like that I remove the illegal software, just tell me! The consequence will be that I won't support you anymore! If you accept this we will remove all the illegal software and I'll guarantee further support.
