    application is not found

    trying to access things in my controll panel to try and fix my problem.

    The people getting replies there are not from brand new topics, but, from those that were already in progress. It's a very busy place, however, they have forum modifications in place that allow them to find posts that are not replied to. But, it takes a lot longer than 20 minutes to get someone assigned to your thread. Likely hours, in fact. If you bump your own thread after only minutes asking why you aren't getting help, you'll probably never get any help.

    If you are the Jacob_Hollis member, it appears you posted 10 minutes ago and only one other thread besides yours has been attented to :doubt:

    In any case, almost all the malware cleaning forums are busy to the gills and the volunteers do a yo mans job. They will get to as mnay as they can when they can.

    well, if things are really messed up as you say in your initial post, a complete reformat may be if not the only, then the quickest and safest solution at least. Fixing such a messed machine can easily take a few days too, if you consider the manner of correspondence on forums. A few hours, even days, can pass between replies in a thread.

    Instant gratification, not patience, seems the norm these days...

    Or weeks and never in some cases(overwhelmed). :argh:
