    Off topic, but...

    1. Turn off system restore (viruses hide there)
    2. Run malwarebytes
    3. run avira antivir
    4. reboot
    5. go into safe mode and rerun both scans
    6. check things out with autoruns:

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx

    If you have a really nasty one that won't let you run any kind of anti-virus program (detects its executable and kills it), try a pre-OS scanner like this one:

    First off I wanted to thank everyone for doing what you did and participating. For all the new members, whether you won something or not, I really hope you stick around. Hopefully by now you guys see that this forum has some kind of "family" feeling to it and it really is a nice place to hang out at :).

    Now on to the prizes. I want to thank everyone who donated and helped with making all this possible. 2nd of all, glad to have one a keyboard, it's actually something I needed. Hopefully next time around I can pitch in and donate something. I have done so in the past but this time around I wasn't able to. :(

    THANKS TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED!

    Both prizes have been dropped off at the post office and each of the winners should have a pm in their mailbox with their tracking info.

    Thank you to everyone who crunched and hopefully we can do this again sometime:toast:

    Sorry--I was tracking the statistics of people who had entered for prizes. I probably should have done everyone--do you want me to retroactively go back and figure things out for you?

    My apologies once again :eek:

    I should have done this earlier in the week, but I was (a) busy and (b) hopeful that p_o_s_pc would get back to me--but I've re-drawn the second HD7770 to a new winner since I haven't heard back.

    The new winner is Jstn7477!
    Please PM me with your shipping info :toast:

    Holy crap, I won an HD 7770? I guess it will accompany the XFX 7770 in my dad's PC at home and double the output. So proud to be a part of TPU's WCG team!
