Disinfect your PC?

Date: September 08, 2006

Iam at my wits' end with my two sons' IBM laptop computers that are riddled with spyware and viruses to the extent that the computers are almost unusable. They use these computers a lot for gaming, surfing the Web, instant messaging and, of course, schoolwork. Ha!! I have purchased software that takes care of viruses and software that takes care of spyware, but it never seemed to work the way it should. I don't want to add more software to the mix and would rather have a disk that I can use on any computer that disinfects the entire machine. They have so much garbage on their computers that I feel adding an anti-virus/anti-spyware program will just complicate things.

The problem here, Mr. R., is that you are describing a magic bullet, and magic bullets go into the same mythical category as free lunches. If somebody could invent a DVD that could be inserted into any computer and clean it up to pristine condition, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet would have new company atop the Fortune 500's billionaires list.
