Thanks for having a little faith, GlassOnion.


I wouldn't steer you guys wrong...and I wouldn't post up a program that I personally have never used.

Nice try to box me in....

It is nothing personal, sorry if you feel it is. I am a professional and as such I do not need software to help me keep my systems clean. As for talking to those who cannot do these things on their own (which, there is nothing wrong with not being able to do so, much in the way I need to take my cars to a mechanic) I would simply offer this one piece of advice to chew on...

As with all things in technology, you get what you pay for. There are rare exceptions, (Firefox being one of the BEST), but in my experience FREE software, sucks.

I guess I am somewhat of a computer snob, but I make my living doing this. It is also hard for me to think about having to worry JUST about one PC, I have a massive network to keep humming.

You're welcome! If any of you need help with settings of those programs, please let me know...I'll do my best to walk you through the basics.

Puckstop31, YGPM.

Here's a link to a good free online virus scanner...you can use it in conjunction with your antivirus program for additional protection.

Jeebus people.... I offered ADVICE. Decent advice if you think about it for a second.

If it makes you feel better, I can start being judgemental. Just lemme know.

I know all about that. lol Our main computer went down because norton missed a virus. It was bad enuff that I had to wipe the drive and install my OS again.

As for that spysweeper I think that it is crap. I used it for awhile I found out that it takes away power from your computer and takes forever to scan both hard drives.

A lot of free software does suck, but these are tried and tested over time by computer experts such as yourself.

I didn't take it personally, I just took you for a goofy goober.

Well, you can understand how when I perceive my husband being attacked, I get defensive. Besides, he was doing just what you claim to be doing..........giving advice.

Anyway, no harm, no foul.

I've used housecall before, it's legit.

I post here, on some motorcycle forums, and on a different forum and know all about low post count people and their 'offers'.

But I also have parents who both teach computers at the college level so a lot of this stuff kind of wears off on me whether I want it or not. That and I've heard of most of these programs already from various areas (said forums above, for instance).


I highly doubt any of those programs are malignant, and if they are, well I guess I'm a fool then.

You're no fool, I appreciate you taking the time to look over the info before posting.


Anyway...back on topic!

Here's a very easy to follow home networking tutorial...this is probably one of the most common issues on the computer forum.
