Thank God that after weeks of thinking on how to solve my problems with my computer it is finally back and now it is running....I have been actually thinking of hiring a technician in order to fixed it because I am having problem connecting to the Web using my usb broadband connection since it is not being recognized because I think it was attacked by a virus. I have consulted my friends and they advised me that instead of spending money with a technician why not solve it yourself...so what I did I downloaded Microsoft Essentials...I never thought that it is just a free product from Microsoft...and I was shocked that I was attacked by a virus because I don't have a Virus scanner anymore! Someone has uninstalled it! Finally, it is already fixed and it is running already.

I could give you lots of advice but I will just give you one website that is free to join and has professionals to help you with all computer problems. I do all my own work but sometimes I need help like we all do. Check out http://www.techspot.com/community/ and they will guide you through fixing problems for free that will save you from taking your computer to a repair shop that could overcharge you. You don't have to take my word for it. I make nothing to tell you about them. Check them out and I guarantee you will start using that site like I do when you need free help and are in a bind.

I am very glad to hear you are back up and running. I guess you know but please always keep an antivirus program for internet use. If you go online without one your computer will be filled with virus, malware, etc. within an hour. If you would like a good one that is free try http://www.avast.com/en-us/index just go to the home tab and keep checking the free version. Don't let them trick you into getting a paid version. The free version is what I use and it is great. I am however going to buy a top of the line virus protector when I get the money. They are actually on sale now and are, I believe #1 in virus protection. Check into "Bit Defender" if you haven't already found what you like. They also let you put the protection on 3 computers for the one purchase price.

It must be quite a relief to see that your computer is back to normal again. I understand fully how you feel when the computer is having problem, it is such a pain in the a*s trying to figure it out the actual cause, especially if it is the virus that is creating the problem, fortunately, you got that fixed without the need to hire a technician, which save you quite a lot of money in that regard. Count yourself a blessing on this one.
