    My dad bought a laptop in 2002 for personal and business use. I helped him set it up at the time but after that left himself to his own devices...the last spyware check and virus scan was done by me a week after he bought it. I'm in the third hour of trying to clean this up. Over 1,000 spyware files so far and I'm still picking 'em up.

    No Windows updates done since he bought it.

    Three seperate malicious viruses, so his CC # is god only knows where by now.

    Anyone have a grenade and another laptop?

    :D I'm thinking about it

    A destructive reboot and reloading all the crap would have taken a lot less time by now, I figured I'd be done in a half hour.
