Computer rebuilding

Spent yesterday afternoon trying to get a virus of the kids computer. Malwarebytes found it and claimed to kill it. Made an AVG boot disk; AVG found it and claimed to kill it.

Still there though. After 6 hrs of screwing with it I reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled windows. Fresh version of malwarebyes, fresh copy of AVG etc.

Now all I have to do is the really hard part, figuring out the video drivers. I'm guessing it's got Intel graphics since it's a dual core Intel chip. We'll see.

Easiest would be to just get a cheap card from Newegg and be done with it.

Good thing you have an idea when it comes to computer troubleshooting. I'm an Information Technology graduate but what's so embarrassing is that I don't really have an idea on how to troubleshoot my own computer. So frustrating.
