    So my grandma is her young age has messed up her computer. I got it to fire up from the last known working config. As of right now, nothing shows on the desktop. However, I am able to manipulate the computer through the task manager. So I was able to get Ad-aware and Spybot installed. I am running adaware, then spybot to get rid of all of malware and stupid stuff like that. I am starting from the basics that I know. Once I get that crap cleaned up, I am going to hit up Trend Micros Housecall and see if any viruses are lurking on her computer.

    Does this sound like a good plan of action at this point in time?

    I am knowledgeable about computers, I know enough to get my way around, but sometimes it is over my head.

    Any starting points to suggest,

    I'm not a huge fan or Trend Micros Housecall. Sometimes it won't even work for me.

    Try AVG or Avast. I like avast more, though.
