Computer Learning for a Gt. Grandma.
Fred and Wilma has left a new comment on the post "My brother Ken & Sister Catherine":
I'll try to answer your question. No I don't have any trade secret. Here is what you have to get:
1. Go to this site: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/8693/how-to-remove-antivirus-live-and-other-roguefake-antivirus-malware/
On that page, go down to the first "bullet" where it says (use the free, portable version of Superantispyware) What I do is download it to a memory stick.
Then go down to the 6th. bullet, and download, to your memory stick, (MalwareBytes).
Now you have both of the best "utility" programs I use.
With the first SuperAntiSpyware downloaded, it left an .exe file. Double click on it and the program will start. Highlight your computers C drive and let it clean your hard drive of all the bad guys.
After its done, go back to your memory stick, double click on MalwareBytes and run it also on your C drive.
You can trust everything that these two programs do without fear.
Now to keep your computer running smooth, go to www.downloads.com and download "Revo Uninstaller". When it's done downloading install it on your computer.
Hope this helps you. “
After watching Chris Guld’s video: http://www.geeksontour.com/showme/picasa/pic309_move2hd.cfm?&CFID=24485196&CFTOKEN=90263961 I found out that you have to go to My Computer, then select the removable drive and then figure out what to do from there. So I managed to get the SuperAntiSpyware on my thumb drive, and even discovered how to find out that it had actually got on there. How I found the .exe file, I still don’t remember! And I let it do it’s C drive scan.
SuperAntiSpyware found some adware junk, and eliminated them.
Then I found out that the Malwarebytes wasn’t on my thumb drive, and managed to get that on there, too. While it was scanning I went out onto the clear vinyl wrapped screen porch and worked on the plants that had suffered some damage during that unusual 12 deg.(F) weather that we had.
Malwarebytes found one more item, and I got rid of that. I found the “Revo Uninstaller", and it is now installed in my computer, but as usual, I don’t know what to do with it? I have no idea what should be uninstalled? I am sure there are several items, but I am scared to do anything.
Thank you Fred. Anyway, the net result is that my computer is fast again.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

USPS tracking says that the Skype stuff I ordered, (so that I can talk to my brother in England), is in the mailbox, so I need to drive down there today.
