Having problems with your Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop ?

Rootkit Hi Recently received warning about rootkit being in my computer, an old Compaq Presario that my young daughter and her mother mostly use. Research tells me I'm supposed to clear everything out and re-install. Have very little expertise with computers, so would probably hire you guys to do this and to install serious security suite of software. Don't really want to buy new computer right now. So trying to decide between two options: 1. keep this old computer, have you guys remove rootkit


Answers :

If you have a virus/spyware which it sounds like you do, you are going to be paying $200 for removal and about 129$ for a standard security setup! It will be cheaper to fix the problem, You are looking around a min. of $400 for a new pc and $149 for the full advanced security! Cheaper to fix it.
