Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Parent's PC is bugged out; need anti-virus software suggestions
I finally got it to run in safemode, and am downloading Spybot which, for whatever reason, they stopped using and then deleted after I moved out. Oh, and their two current levels of protection, SUPERAntiSpyware and MalwareBytes, seem ineffective at best and the first seems possibly illegitimate. Regardless, whatever free trail they had going of those is expired, so they are gone. I try to tell my parents you can have a guarded computer for free, they don't believe me. So, besides Spybot and another lecture / demonstration (mostly aimed at my little brother and his internet 'shenanigans'), what other free softwares should I be using to keep this PC clean?
Oh, uh, Windows XP, if it's relevant.
E: I'm not sure what kind of malware or virus or whathave you is on this computer now, but whatever it is keeps me from opening multiple system files, and also blocks access to the internet. It doesn't redirect, it just won't load. On that note, the SUPERAntiSpyware quickrun icon looks like the normal Vista shield, but unlike Vista's warnings, this was popping up non-microsoft windows last night, all of which told me to scan for things and ultimately wanted to redirect me to a website to purchase their product. Ehem sounded a tad shady.
