Hello and Welcome, My name is Shanmuganathan and I use the handle “shanmuga” in the forums where I am a member, helping in Malware removal since the year 2003 and troubleshooting PC issues since the year 2001 mainly through various online help forums……a hobby till recently, now threatens to become a full time occupation. I reside in the city of Chennai in India.
I am a member of ASP – Association of Support Professionals – “an international membership organization for customer support managers and professionals”. I beta test various security software (Firewall, Anti-virus and Anti-Spyware software) and also tested for Microsoft.
What is the purpose of this Website?
To provide step-by-step instructions for cleaning common Malware and to prevent recurrence to those who are new to online security. We also offer current security news and articles analysis.
Why do the pages load slow?
Because this is an image intensive Website, couple of refreshes of your browser is needed to view some of the pages completely, on a slow connection. I am a great believer in the saying that A Picture is worth a thousand words. You will see hundreds of screenshots explaining the various steps all over this Website.
