with respect to your knowlege of issues the user in this thread and i were having the exact same problem and were resolving it. i fail to see how, since we were working to resolution you edited the posts. i'll stop there as i am not a very happy camper about it and to continue would only get me banned.
It is board policy that we respectfully ask you not to post advice/suggestions in the Malware Forums unless you are a trained Staff member. Too often, the advice given is not only incomplete, but even harmful at times. We do not just randomly edit posts, we do so uniformly, anytime advice is offered by a member. The post of yours in question, while I am very happy that method seems to have helped you, was an incomplete 'fix'. It was not working for the member who had tried it, and I could not allow others to keep trying it. I am sorry if this has made you angry, but please respect our policies.

I would like the opportunity to be a staff member also. I think I could be a valuable member of the team.

I am interested in joining the GeekU team!
My knowledge of computers has been years in the making.
I started at a young age when an uncle helped me build my first PC. He was the first person I knew to have a computer at home. I gave him a little money each month and when the pot got large, we would buy parts together. He showed me the parts, told me what they did, and how to install them. Right out of the gate, I was ahead of the game. It didn't take long for me to realize that computers were my life. I spent the next several years helping friends and family with building systems, fixing hardware/software problems, and recomending software for special needs. Finished with High School, I jumped right into college where I learned about computer programming. I left the state to get a good IT position and wound up with my best friend in Orlando working for Disney instead. A few years later, I finally woke up. I kept asking myself, "What am I doing here?" I brought myself back to my homestate, got back into college, and earned a degree in networking. Soon after, I became a CNA.
I am currently working in the IT department for a casino on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I setup and install new pc's, perform backups of casino data, and fix problems across the network as they arise.
I am very interested in your "Geek U" training. I would love to help others for two reason: First, I feel the only way to repay my uncle for introducing me to the digital world is by helping others as he once helped me. Second, I think it's shameful that people are wasting their incredible programming knowledge by creating viruses and spyware. If these people were to put their talents to the better good, I believe the technology of the PC industry would be much more advanced than it is today.
Please give me the chance to asssist others with their PC problems. I look forward to working with a group of people who share the common goal of helping others and putting out the next Virus Road Block.
