  1. My other thread.

    In my other thread, I got stuck at a point and now I'm rendered useless... I had alot of trojans and things wrong with my computer and I think it may of fixed it but I just don't wanna continue trying to fix it.

    I was wondering If a Factory Restore is the best bet to get rid of all viruses, up the speed of my comp. Also, because a restore is only a temp fix, you would have to get the best software, is there a list of software that is RECOMMENDED to use to protect against anything?

    /edit...apperently you cant do a "factory restore", well maybe ill get more hits on my other thread

    Why cant u do a factory restore?
    If u built the computer ur self u cant for sure.
    But u can still reinstall the system and FORMAT the computer!

    What programs to use to be safe?

    Antivirus
    Firewall
    Get a router with firewall built in.
    Ccleaner
    spybot s&d
    lavasoft ad-aware
    microsoft antispy thing +++

    Any help for ya?
