I'm using AVIRA since years and I highly recommend it.

Download AVIRA Antivir

But: If you already caught a cold no virus program will help you AFTERWARDS.... They work a bit like condoms.. they can protect before something happens! Once your gf is pregnant no condom will help you out no more if you get what I mean.

Most likely you can safe your computer by using Windows XP's/Vista's 'System Recovery' to restore your computer to any point of time before your comp run mad and check all entries which will start programs at boot time.

I found an AVG program. When i try to remove some of the viruses, it says the file cannot be found... so does that mean that its safe?

I don't like AVG personally, I recommend Avast.

If it cant be found it might remain in your registry or make a backup of itself, (it may also be one of them hiding viruses which I forgot the name of) sometimes when I experience viruses I remove them with AVG but they make a backup of themselves, Personally, I'd recommend first doing a scan with any decent virus scanner you can try AVG free if you like, and also do a spyware scan with Spybot S&D (yes this program is free)

If when you start a second scan to see if it's really gone it pops up again, you might want to try the windows maliscious software removal tool, you can find it here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...E0-E72D-4F54-9AB3-75B8EB148356&displaylang=en
For me it works when I want to get rid of a virus for good.

    As for Github, I often frequent there, boasting about my genetic algorithm for tools-assisted speedrunning and such. I'm also pretty active on Discord, with my tag @asperatology.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Yeah, the whole earthquake + air pollution combo made me completely forget about bringing updates. I'll be sure to keep on top of things after all things are less requiring my attentions.

    I am just glad that you are OK Tom! Thank you for the update!
  • Varine Varine:
    Glad to hear you're okay! I only knew about your Github cuz I tried to follow some of you when I was learning how to program, but didn't understand any of it so kind of quit paying attention to what anyone does on it

    Briefly, he'll only be there for the interim. Like a stopgap of sorts, he'll be back home in short time
  • O Old Mountain Shadow:
    Hurray! Tom has reappeared!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Happy Thursday!
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    Yep. Just another fun night at work.
  • Varine Varine:
    Broke the nozzle on my 3d printer and I don't have another heater block. So... I guess I'm fucked on that this weekend
  • The Helper The Helper:
    that sucks i bet they are expensive
  • Varine Varine:
    Not really
  • Varine Varine:
    The entire hot end is like 20 dollars, I just can't get anymore until next week
  • Varine Varine:
    I ordered like five blocks for 15 dollars. They're just little aluminum blocks with holes drilled into them
  • Varine Varine:
    They are pretty much disposable. I have shitty nozzles though, and I don't think these were designed for how hot I've run them
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to extract it but the thing is pretty stuck. Idk what else I can use this for
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll throw it into my scrap stuff box, I'm sure can be used for something
  • Varine Varine:
    I have spare parts for like, everything BUT that block lol. Oh well, I'll print this shit next week I guess. Hopefully it fits
