This has been one of the most worthwhile endeavors of my life. I started out like others, just trying to help a friend a few years ago, who had a fake antivirus, and who had actually *paid* for it with his credit card...and I was overwhelmed and tried everything I could think of, finally posting on another malware-fighting site, where one of the experts helped us clean his system. This happened several times, and I was fascinated by what malware fighters did, and asked them how I could learn, and was sent here.

At times I've been incredibly frustrated, and felt I 'just wasn't getting it,' and once even left for a while, as I felt that malware was progressing faster than I could keep up...but I missed this place, and wanted to be one of 'the good guys' who helped people in distress due to these ruthless criminals, so I came back, and redoubled my efforts, and finally made helper today.

From the beginning on here I was pushed to learn (rather than just to copy others), and there is so much to learn...but to anyone who's ever read Sherlock Holmes this is a totally cool area to be in, and I am proud to be part of the gang. Only problem has been trying to explain to my friends what it is I'm so happy about: "I made 'helper' today, Yayyy!!!", and they're like: "There's no surf and it's cold outside!, dude...what's a "helper?") Sometimes it's like fighting vampires, where the hardest part is just convincing people they exist......

Anyway, I've had so much help and I thank you all!:wave:

Congratuations duckfeet!


and they're like: "There's no surf and it's cold outside!, dude...what's a "helper?") Sometimes it's like fighting vampires, where the hardest part is just convincing people they exist......

I definitely know the feeling; give it some time and people will start flocking to you for advice when their own computers start acting up.. :)
