How I Spent My Afternoon, Part 2

HOW I SPENT MY AFTERNOON, PART 2….My mother’s computer is now a computer again, not a paperweight. Only time will tell if I really got everything, but for now her PC seems to be working fine once again.

Many, many thanks to everyone who left comments or sent email with advice on how to fix her spyware infestation. It’s much appreciated.
