Anthony G Posted February 5, 2005 Report Share Posted February 5, 2005 Hello All, I am going to set up my new Dell XPS today. Orginally I wanted to use Norton Ghost to transfer everything from my old computer to my new computer. However, my computer is plagued with spyware, adware et. I use spybot, but was unable to remove everything. When I run a virus scan, Norton detects a bunch of junk. It is unable to remove it. I know for sure the knowledge base in this Forum far excedes my knowledge of computers. Some questions I have: 1) Do I need to go through my entire computer and hopefully find all my important files or can I use the Ghost software to back up everything and grab whatever I need later? I am giving away my old computer to family and will probably reformat the whole thing before I do. 2) What is the best commercial software to protect my new computer from the same problems I suffered with my old computer? 3) I'm sure all software works differently, what do I do when I have commercial software which I have paid for? I want to make sure my licenses carry over when I set up my new computer. I paid for much of my software by downloading demos and paying for the full functionality via online purchasing. I have no physical copies of the software. Any help would be very appreciated. Any other suggestions would also be most welcome. Thanks, Lupo Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
