    This thread saved my PC from having to be restored the other night after my wife used it and clicked on an e-mail she shouldn't have opened:

    READ & RUN ME FIRST. Malware Removal Guide - MajorGeeks Support Forums

    This is far and away the most effective and thorough method of completely eliminating a virus and spyware off my PC. Needless to say I thought I'd post it here as I'm sure someone may need it at some point :verycool:

    I know. But my wife decided that the e-mail she got was actually from UPS, although you would have thought after everything I've taught her she wouldn't have fallen for it. Instead she opted to click on it :rolleyes:

    Hey, I'm with you Michael. Believe me, I'd get a Mac in a heartbeat. They're just way too expensive and the thought of having to spend the time to learn how to do everything all over again scares me :confused3:
