Hello! I'm new here and found this site useful

  1. Hi,

    Got stung by that nasty System Alert trojan and found this site while investigating how to get rid of it.

    I run a Dell desktop with Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 3
    (not a new machine and I'm due for an upgrade..ysy!) Pentium 4CPU 2.80GHz
    2.79 GHZ 1.00 GB of RAM... nothing fancy. I'm not sure of the other hardware specs though.

    I followed a few threads and found the folks here friendly, informative and interesting! I live in Rumney NH and work for Plymouth State University as a programmer. Thank
    you for the time you put into all this!

    Hmmm.... Is this a home computer or work? This happens to me sometimes when I just get sloppy on the keyboard and transpose letters. I just slow down and retype. I don't know a work around but if it is a work computer maybe someone there can help you if something changed your password? You haven't change your password recently have you?

    I see someone does/did have access to your computer! She may have changed your password.... I'll see what I can find out for you... Is this your own pc or is/was this a shared one? If it's your own pc, I'm wondering why she is the administrator!

    Yes, definitely a bit much yes! I just went to that site to take a look.

    The person who used it had to a couple of times. He says it's reliable and safe. There are three steps to it. You will need a bootable floppy - they tell you how to set it all up on that site. Let me know how it goes!
