yeah, M_D, those step by step solutions are very complicated, even if you know exactly what you are doing. Some of the instructions are ambiguously written, and they assume that you have done things like this in the past.
My friend was at my house just last weekend and got a virus on my other pc from looking at a break.com standard gallery. I was there when AVG popped up the notice. We ran scans and such, were not able to locate a virus, but one is clearly there since my homepage and preferred search engine keep changing.
That pc is about to get the old reformat C:/ when I turn it on again.
