I got my computer back today, good as new! He said there were multiple viruses on it, plus a lot of programs that really weren't needed.

Did they give you any clue as to how your computer got so sick, Shari?

I just posted something on Computer Tips that might just save you at least $100. I was going to post it here but it is kind of long......check it out....

Remember when I said sometime back that Google was going to put in super high speed internet in a few places to check it out? One of them is in Kansas... 1 gigabit per second......all I can say is OMG.......lol......sign me up.

The one they installed for me is called Avast. It is free for one year. They said for me to just have one anti-virus. Sometimes more than one just causes more problems.

Shari,

Avast free version is the one that my favorite computer tech here at work recommended to me.
