It’s Borepaaatch, All the Way…
Last Wednesday, this here computer went all wonky on me. Popups, weird links, other crap. What to do? (besides panic)?
I called my bud Borepatch (don’t try this at home- he’s a friend of mine & a really good shot). He gave me some suggestions, which I followed.
I used my resident AVG scanner, & it reported “8 bells, & all is well”.
Then I used the Microsoft evil software finder thingy, & it let me know that there were “no infections found”.
Go to the Borepatch site, on my friend’s suggestion. There, under the “security” tag, was a recommendation for Malware Bytes.
Downloaded it, ran it, & it found 28 “infections”, which contained them, & deleted after I followed the instructions. 40 minutes for the entire removal/scan process- can’t beat that with a stick.
I’m a happy camper.
Sorry 'bout that...
