Hello all,
This is my first post and I'm absolutely sure that I'm not the first to mention these problems. My computer is giving me flack. I get endless popups and warnings about how my computer may be infected. I see people on forums like these and when they state their problems they provide some sort of log below. Is this a necessary step to troubleshoot the problem? How exactly do ya do that? I'm not the smartest with computers so I'm not sure what you need from me or how to provide it.
I've run spybot s&d, ad-aware, norton, ewido, I've done disc cleanup, defragged, deleted temp files and gotten rid of absolutely everything that I thought was just taking up space. I'm at the point where perhaps the best way to fix things would be convert my computer into a top of the line paperweight.
Any help would be priceless.
:tazz: :)

Hi solohog! Welcome to G2G!

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
