Yes !! I had to actually buy a new computer because of it. I was using mine and it died - it was older though. then I used my sisters laptop and now I bought me a cheap computer from walmart. It seems to stop the viruses though. I have had a ton of virus alerts though.

Yes. Install two free spyware/malware/antivirus programs....

avira and malwarebytes... If you can't find them, I'll see if I can look it up. This was at the recommendation of my IT guy here at work. I also installed at home.

By the way, my thread was moved. UGH. So frustrating. Because you know, viruses aren't thrifty. I disagree. Keeping my computer working rather than having to pay someone to fix my machine is pretty darn thrifty if you ask me.

I know I have a free anti-virus software there, and it works, and if you use google chrome as a browser it often doesn't let you onto diaperswappers at all because of the malware.
