{{ i wasn't sure if i should join, as i am a 'basic' computer person and not anywhere near, or even close to, the level of all of you all that i have read on here, so far... }}..believe it or not, i have used it for years, without all these problems..all of a sudden, it has gone ' nuts ' on me..i read the malware removal guide..it makes sense & i obvi have been invaded by something...i did try to run the Kaspersky TDSSKiller, again last night, & early this a.m...((no luck..my computer keep's saying this file cannot be found, etc..& it won't load it for some reason..obvi, i have something(s) wrong here...))..i hope this isn't too long..i answered as best as i could, atm...going to shut down, then restart computer, in a bit...will try to check in soon...i hope i answered some of your questions correctly.. :) ** (( i tried )) ** ty.. bear with me if i posted wrong...(( i am learning..ty all again )) :)

Yes,a Windows clean installation is more than welcome (thats if you don't have very important data in your PC...in which case maybe you may want to save it first ;) )

First i would like to advise you to post your computers symptoms here please:
http://malwaretips.com/forums/malware-removal-assistance.10/

I would like to ask if you have uninstalled Kaspersky, before placing AVG free..

oh...sorry..i will try to do that..(post symptoms on the other string)..& no, i still have my Kaspersky installed..it shows four things in my installed programs area, for Kaspersky..((have had it installed for years, it ran out a bit ago))..i would have uninstalled, but wasn't sure if i would mess up computer more by uninstalling anything else, until i figure this all out, so i stopped uninstalling any programs..no, i have had AVG for about 3 to 5 years plus now, i think ((i do update & run it whenever i am on...))..after i answer you & everyone above, do i move, or repeat this to that string ?..(( i'll catch on ..sorry about that))

Yes you are correct, you will receive the help you need in the other threads. No one will make fun of you here, as we all started as "beginners" at one point. ;) :)

Hi,
You should try to scan your computer with hitman pro and uninstall all your obsolete AV with revo uninstaller, that should be a good start

by obsolete AV I mean obsolete AntiVirus

If you are using AVG as active security software , I suggest you uninstall MacAfee, Kaspersky, Norton and any other security suite you might have, even if they ran out or are inactive ;)

Hi eowyn. I pray your quest towards "computer functionality" goes well in your favor..Soon! I think SifhX was suggesting you 'uninstall Anti Virus programs', those you no longer use = 'obsolete AV'. Different Anti-virus software programs can cause problems in a system as a result of their incompatibilities. 'Revo Uninstaller' was a software he was recommending to use in removal of the Anti Virus programs. We're all wishing you healing both technically & in your Spirit too!;)
