Hope you technical types can help me out.

My computer seems to run normally except I can't get rid of the Nader virus. I delete it over and over, as does everyone, but it keeps coming back.

I am a little worried because the virus seems to be more random and irrational each time it appears and it is getting extremely annoying.

Thank you for your help.

What you need dude is a thing called Advanced System Optimizer (or ASO for short).

Its free if you google the name with "free download" in there as well.

It is pretty much the best tool for PC's, as far as maintenance and cleaning sh*t up.

If you can use one of your virus scans to locate where the infected file is (I suggest AVG, free again and very good) then there is an option on ASO that is called "Secure Delete"...........trust me, once you use that option on a file.........it aint coming back. :wink:

Let me know how it goes or if you need anymore help.

Hey bigs, I was thinking the same think. AVG is great a gettingrid of pesky virus. I was suffering with that Ultimate Defender/Ultimate Cleaner crap when a friend turnded me on to AVG. I had just paid for Spybot which works OK. But I think AVG is best, and like you said, you can download it for free.

Hey Reg, good to see you in Off Topic man. :wink:

Yeah, it makes me sad that so many people pay for software like this, and your talking about $80 or so for virus software when there is free stuff that is better.

The combination of AVG with a thing called Adware, and ASO is literally all you need...........and its all free!!!

Man, I download all my software, and I talking about things that would normally cost $400 like the version of Photoshop I have.

Off Topic is where its at for the real interesting stuff...........Warriors are what we are here for, Warriors Basketball forum is where talk about our boys.............Off Topic is where we inhance our minds! :wink:

Also, man, read back through some of the older topics..........this Atheism one is nothing compared to some of the old topics and arguments weve had (and most of the time, theres no name calling, just people exchanging idead/opinions)

All the political ones are highly recommended. :wink:

How did you feel about the return of "him" in the George Carlin thread?

I noticed that. After six times of saying that he is done, he still comes back.
