hello to everyone I have joined this forum in the hope of technical help on my pc which is giving me a hard time, problem followed by problem.I do not have much knowledge of computers, can find my way around most ordinary things, it;s when the extra ordinary appears I am quickly lost. I've got avg anti- virus.spybot and spyhunter and yet more than enough viruses, spy and malware from time to time. the pc is slow to start and recently - until a sys restore changed things - would not go online. recent rootkit scan produced some disturbing looking data that I am sure are infections but I am too ignorant to deal with them. what a way to say howdo but it's why i'm here and wondering if its the right place to get help.
