Hey guys! Sorry for the harsh title but I have ran across this issue 2x in the past 2 years where I lost everything! Now I am protected and I love it! Not only is my computer running fast but my computer is protected as well.. Now what I created this post for was to help some of you save a headache and potential HUGE data loss! Okay so step 1 is to get you a pretty good anit virus for free.. What I use that works GREAT and it is free is MICRO SOFT SECURITY ESSENTIALS Next this step is the 2nd and the last! Now this is going to cost you but it is a one time fee and will not only repair almost every single problem your computer has but it is going to speed it up as well as protect it and place a secondary fire wall on your PC to protect from intruders. Now the program is called SYSTEM SUITE 11 "PC Tune up and Repair" it costs $40 at your local wal mart and has an optional 2 year warranty on replacing the cd for an addiontal $3. It also comes with a 3 PC license so you can install it on all your home computers and laptops. It comes with more tools then I care to sit here and type! lol Now these tools are ran at a one click basis! So there is no need to manually run all 60 tools.. it will do it for you. Now I am not affiliated with these services or products at all! I am just sharing with you what I have found that works and works well! STOP WASTING TIME WITH THOSE CRAPPY PROGRAMS.. Spend a little bit of money and do it right the first time.. Not a bad investment considering you are covered! Anyways there you go! A $40 fix and you basically are covered period! Now imagine the money you save considering the techie's over at best buy tried to charge me $200 to fix my $290 computer.. well I say BEST INVESTMENT EVER!
