He says there is lots of virus in his sytem

It will be better boot at safe mode (press F8 while booting), save your documents and data, format and start again with an antivirus since from the beginning  8)

Athene, we are here for help... our pleasure and our duty  :)
But, some users (I hope troubleshooting were not one of them) come asking for an emergency, logof and don't wait  :-\ :-[

That's a good attitude, Technical...
Perhaps, though, someone posts a question when they are in a panic about what to do, don't realize there are time zones to consider, and they disappear to seek help elsewhere. JMO, but isn't it better to give the advice because it is the right thing to do? At least that way, if and when they return, they will have what they need...

Hi Athene, welcome to the forums.

Unfortunately there are many in a hurry, asking for a reply in 8 hours may be considered fast in forums they have previously visited. Here 8 hours is a long time.

They received a reply in a little over 1 minute, a second in under 3 hours, yet they are too busy to acknowledge the replies or ask for further information or expand on the problem.

That is unfortunately their loss as there is a wealth of experience in these forums.

Thank you, David, for the welcome...

And you are right about it being their loss! In the short time that I have been reading the forums, I have noticed that many people do "hit and run" after posting about a problem...
There certainly is a wealth of experience and expertise available here. I've learned much just by wandering around the forums  :)
