[friendly tone /] True, but why portray ourselves as zealouts? That aside,
the OP could be either mail or female, judging by the E-mail address.

I would like to add to my previous reply that Lobo's follow-up should be
looked at more carefully and thoroughly than mine. I fully departed from
Windows before its security complications resurfaced, so I am less than
properly familiar with malware. I would assume that his assessment is a
plausible one.

If you become frustrated, I suggest you ask the hired professional to set you
up with a dual boot, i.e. both Linux and Windows XP on the same computer.
Try to familiarise yourself with this newer platform, which has evolved to
become better than Windows. Better now then later.
