    Help, I Can't Post!

    I haven't had any problems posting until recently. When I try to submit a reply, a little box comes up from CC. It says my post is too short and to add more characters. Has to be longer than 3 characters??? I never answer in only 3 characters LOL. Could somebody please figure this out for me??

    Now I'll see if I can even send this!

    Hey,
    Thanks for your answer. No viruses. I think the hard drive is dying.
    That's why I'm using my phone now That
    wouldn't have anything to do with the message I
    kept getting, would it?

    I don't think a dying hard drive would be watching your keystrokes...but...a virus or malware may look like your hard drive is failing. What virus checker do you have? Is it up to date?

    I have what ever comes with windows. Also tried AVG and Trend Micro, not sure of the name on the last one.
    This is driving me crazy. Not a good time for the old thing to die. But, it's never a good time when things die on you

    Can you reccomend a good virus/malware remover that is free?

    What version of windows? What browser are you using? (Microsoft Windows Defender is free...but it doesn't come with all versions).

    AVG is probably the best of the freebies.

    Windows7 Can't remember if it's called defender, or something else. I would look, but I've been trying to get it to boot for hours...no luck. If it decides to cooperate, I'll check what it is.

    In the meantime, I think I should go pout!

    Win 7 does install Defender automatically. Probably as good a virus checker as most.

    Seems to me that Win 7 has some built in "safe boot", "troubleshooting" features. Have you tried those?

    Finally got it going this morning. Quite a few times, but
    it never lasted long.

    I do have defender. I did
    all sorts of trouble shooting, but
    never saw anything about booting
    repair.

    I forgot, you asked about the
    browser. Prefer chrome, but
    went to firefox because chrome was
    freezing. Firefox started doing the same.
    Went to ie and same thing after a
    couple weeks. Now using opera and it's the
    one with less trouble.
