I don't know if this is going to work but this is the third time I've attempted to make a post about what happened recently. It was like an attack on my computer but luckily my AVG was able to detect and handle the threat. But now sure whether it was contained or not. I've had trouble accessing the internet for hours. It came to the point were I decided to just decided to clean up some of the excess waste files on my drive and so far i got rid of one gigabyte worth of files. I hope it wouldn't affect mylotting for the next couple of days.

Oh those Trojan Horse notices freak me out! But yah, I'm glad the virus protection stops that (we hope). It's a good time to clean up the system anyway. Hope everything is a-ok!

my computer went really slow after that attack and i had like three reboots and more waits. I don't think it's going to be okay. @much2say I better start saving soon.

From what I understand it is hard to completely rid yourself of the trojan horse. hopefully you won't have any touble with it now and maybe you have been able to get rid of it.

@Letranknight2015 Windows has never been the safest to have so you will need more security then normal.
