Newbie greeting

  1. Hi all. My name is Errol and I'm new to your site and forums generally.
    I signed on while researching info on removing (or trying to remove) Think-Adz and affiliated adware/spyware including BRDR.

    I have NOD32 virus protection and bought Spyhunter in the false belief it would identify and remove adware.

    Even with NOD32, the rotten things have managed to infect my computer and are driving me crazy.

    I thought about doing a reinstall but I'm not confident that I wouldn't end reinfected again.

    Any advice (that works!) would be very much appreciated!

    Kind regards,

    Knowing someone's location in the world can be extremely helpful, even if you just put a country.

    With regards to your problem, the best thing to do is get a good firewall and anti virus and run at least 2 anti spyware programs. Other than that it's just safe browsing :)
