    Hey guys, Last night i got through step 6 on that list of things to do. The scans took a long time.
    As of now the problem seems to be gone.Should i continue through the whole list or do you think i am ok.
    Thanks alot for the help so far,i would have never figured this out on my own.

    Yes you should continue, absence of symptoms does not mean that the problem is gone.
