I let my granddaughter use my laptop for school for a few months. Now, it has all kinds of problems. I usually use AVG or McAfee but I can't even get those to install. I've got the machine working fairly ok but I've got a virus called "abnow.com" that misdirects my browsers.
I tried "PC Tools SpyWare" and it couldn't complete the scan, but found a couple of thousand problems. Didn't fix any.
I tried "Stopzilla" and it completely crashed my system when I tried to reboot.
I had made a recovery disk when I first got the machine but I guess I didn't do it write because I can't get it to work.
I think maybe my only option is to buy a new version of Windows 7 Home premium.
Does anyone any suggestions or opinions?
